This most impressive antique brass table top telescope was made by Thomas Cooke of York around the turn of the century and branded a by Ross, probably for military / naval use..

 

Given its age of 120 years plus its in very good condition, the objective is about 3 and a quarter inches free of cracks and mould, showing cleaning marks over the years, but still produces a good clear image.

 

 

The rack and pinion is nice and smooth, a small amount of sticking at one point but not seriously so.

 

 

The image is terrestrial,it could be used to look at the moon, but understand  that the optics are old.

 

 

It is a very imposing telescope with a interesting pedigree.

 

 

It would look at home in both a minimalist and period environment and connects with a period in English history when we were a major major player in the 

 

world of Scientific and optical instruments.
