This sea telescope is made of brass, the handle of fabric. They were once used in the shipping industry.

The sliding mechanisms on the back of this model is particularly nice. This still works well and the lens has always been well protected and remained undamaged Furthermore, the handle really adds to the beautiful antique look

Condition: Good condition. Both lenses are intact. When pulled too hard, the screw thread is loosened.

I always package my items with great care. I protect it and make sure there is sufficient padding material. The lot will be shipped by registered post.
