This classic four drawer, 12x magnification telescope is typical of those used by 18th century naval officers. The admirals, having experimented with higher magnifications, had decided that this was about the optimum for use at sea, hence concentrated on developing practical features such as the slide-out hood for reducing glare when the sun was high
It is made from solid brass tubing bound with stitched leather, protected in a brass-buckled leather case, and would have been a highly prized possession.

35mm object lens, length fully extended 470mm (18"), closed 185mm (7").
