A leather covered single draw telescope, signed near the eyepiece, ‘Dixey, 3 New Bond Street, London’.The company occupied this address between 1825 – 1865 and had a Royal Appointment to Queen Victoria.
The extended length of the telescope is 45″ (114cms) and closed, 38″ (96cms). The main lens has a diameter of 55mm. With end cap and eyepiece slider, the leather covering is complete and firm but has a little’ bubbling’ (probably due to it being pigs leather). The optics give a fine, sharp image with a magnification of 25x.
