This instrument is 6 inches closed and extends to 16.5 inches.
This is a great little, 3-draw telescope from the mid-19th century. A favorite of travelers, sailors and military officers, these glasses were once quite common. This one is particularly nice, having a fine mahogany veneer covering the brass barrel. This instrument is 6 inches closed and extends to 16.5 inches. It still has its original finish and lens cap. The optics are clear. I am confident you will be pleased with this wonderful little glass. In pristine condition.
