Antique Surveyor's Sighting Level
by Lutz Y Schulz, Buenos Aires
Good example of an antique surveyor's sighting telescope with spirit level. The brass tube is signed "Lutz Y Schulz, Buenos Aires" and also "Short & Mason Ltd. London".
The level also comes in a protective leather case with press stud fastening, however the stitching in the bottom part is coming away.
The instrument itself is in good condition for its age. It produces a clear image that is easy to focus and the spirit level bubble is easy to see. I cannot guarantee it's accuracy and it is being sold as a decorative / collectors piece rather than an accurate scientific instrument. The brass has tarnished over time which gives a nice aged patina. It has some minor surface marks and signs of age and use but nothing detrimental. It has been lightly cleaned and displays very nicely.
Length : 5" (13cm)
Diameter : 3/4" (2cm)
