Antique BRASS TELESCOPE E.G. WOOD LONDON 19thC 16″ POCKET SPYGLASS & CASE FWO
DescriptionAn E.G. Wood London Three Draw Telescope or Spyglass.
Measures 16.25 Inches when fully deployed.
This Telescope will date to the late 19th / very early 20th Century.Brass with a Leather Binding.
As seen I have had this Telescope apart, all in very good order internally with only minor signs of age and use.
All the Lenses are clean, all are present and correct, no visible wear, no cracks or chips.Focuses easily and precisely giving a superbly clear and sharp image in use, its magnification strength is surprisingly good.All the Threaded Components run well on clean threads and tighten properly, no issues at all.
The Binding shows only very minor surface signs of age and use, it is intact and firmly in place with no major damage or structural issues.
The Barrel itself has no structural issues, obviously I cannot see underneath the Binding but it feels fine, no movement, no obvious dents.
Both Ends are strong with no movement.
The Eyepiece Shutter is present and moves freely.
The Objective Dust Cap fits snugly and is in good order.The Draws are all a good friction fit, moving smoothly and firmly with only minimal sideways play at the joints when fully extended. A good quality collectable and working Period Telescope by a Documented London Maker.
The Linen covered original Case has some signs of age and use but is serviceable and very good to have with the Piece.
