DOLLAND OF LONDON
DAY or NIGHT
Late 19th and early 20th century telescopes are becoming increasingly difficult to find in good original condition, particularly from a pedigreed instrument maker like Dolland
Presented is a very large, high quality, British Naval pattern, single draw telescope from one of the British’s best know makers, Dolland.
DIMENSIONS: It measures 25 1/4” extended. Weighs 2
lbs 8 oz
CONDITION: Admiralty pattern, single draw telescope of brass and fine wood.The wood is nicely finished and in very good condition. The brass shows a pleasing patina of age. The movable sun shade forward has a darker patina but no dents. The 40mm objective lens is uncoated, but the focus of the telescope is not sharp or clear. The sliding sun shield is to reduce glare at sea.
Although the optics of many of these antique marine telescopes of that period are not functioning as originally designed, they make beautiful vintage reminders of the period and their use at sea. They should be appreciated for their historical significance and dramatic aesthetics they bring to any nautical collection or decor.
