TELESCOPE - Nautical - Reproduction - Quartermaster 25X -- W. OTTWAY
1 / 7
No Longer Needed
Reproduction of a English Quartermaster’s Telescope which is usually used by the quartermaster detailed to steer the ship. This spyglass is much better then the current China reproductions. It measures 28” < 32½" in length, has a 2½” aperture (object end), and weighs 2½ pounds. The main tube is wrapped with leather which has been refinished. The draw tube is signed "W/ OTTWAY & CO. LTD" "LONDON". Based on the design, craftsmanship, and materials used it was probably made in India. The scope seems to focus OK with a clear view except for a small spot on one lens, which does not appear to be a chip. This nautical item displays nicely and actually works.
