Lot 0359
AN ANGLO/AMERICAN LEATHER WRAPPED BRASS TELESCOPE AND TRIPOD STAND, LATE 19TH/EARLY 20TH CENTURY, of cylindrical form and centering a stitched leather panel, flanked by an extendable eye focus with slide lens protector, opposite an extendable distance focus with slide lens protector, unsigned, closed length: 12", open length: 23.25"; together with a later brass mounted wood tripod table top stand, height: 11.50".


The stitched leather panel has nice old patina and expected wear from use. The brass has normal wear, with some light scratches, dings and buildup throughout. The lens on both ends are a bit cloudy. The table top tripod stand is probably of a later date but is made very well and exhibits some light wear.
