Large stargazer, sea viewer with beautiful patina - hardwood, copper, leather

Description
Large stargazer, sea viewer with beautiful patina - hardwood, copper, leather
Brass lens, Telescope - Good (used & in working condition with visible signs of use)

Art on a tripod. Beautiful and well-working telescope of copper, brass on a mahogany (?) hardwood tripod. Rotatable and height is adjustable.
Age is unclear, but given the fantastic patina it has quite a bit of age. You can see the difference when you turn the viewer out (see photos). The leather strap is still working, the end has come off though. Also, 2 screws are missing from the legs to lock the height. These are just minor details, I chose to keep it original. That includes not polishing it (the patina is beautiful) and also leave the wood as it is. Nice traces of the past.
The viewer has nice details such as the bottom of the legs of the tripod, but also for example the two buttons to lock the viewer itself.

The photos speak for themselves and are part of the description.

Viewer 96.5 to 101 cm long (depending on focus). Tripod from 85 cm to 140 cm.
