A good four draw brass telescope, signed on the first draw, ‘Bullock, Macclesfield’, measuring 33″ ( 84 cms ) fully drawn and 11.5″ ( 29 cms ) retracted with a main lens of 1.75″.
The barrel is finished in black leather and the eye-piece has a sun filter slider as an addition. The tripod stands 12.5″ high.
The case holds a celestial eye-piece and this can be fitted by unscrewing the first draw and fitting this eye-piece into the second draw which will then give an inverted image.
The mahogany case measures 12.5″ x 6.5″ and has a working lock and key. There is a small split to the lid near the top escutcheon plate.
The telescope gives a good, clear view in both terrestial and celestial mode.
No dents and retaining original lacquer.
The name Thomas William Bullock is recorded as being an optician at 27 Stanley Street, Macclesfield, circa 1890, and this is more than likely to have been the retailer of this instrument.
