4 Draw Telescope
by Broadhurst Clarkson & Co Ltd
63 Farringdon Road, London. E.C.
Fine example of a high quality telescope dating from the early to mid 20th century. It is a powerful field telescope which is fitted with an additional Pancratic Draw Tube which enables the power to be increased from 25x to 40x in stages of 5x. The telescope body is covered in brown leather which is in very good condition. There are two protective leather end caps plus a shoulder carry strap. The draw tubes are bronzed brass and have retained the anti glare coating.
It is engraved 'Broadhurst Clarkson & Co Ltd. 63 Farringdon Road, London. E.C.'
Closed Length : 10" (16cm)
Extended Length : 33" (84cm)
Front Lens Diameter : 1 3/4" (4.5cm)
The condition of the telescope is very good. It is fully functional with undamaged lenses. The lenses are generally clean and they produce a clear and crisp image.The tubes are free of major dents and the draws have a smooth but firm action. There are some small knocks and scuffs around the edges and general signs of use but nothing detrimental. The leather case is in good condition and has a lovely aged patina. The case is marked "J.D.Caines".
It is not a new telescope so please don't expect it to be like new. It is a beautiful antique instrument that is still functional and also a lovely decorative collectors piece.
