The telescope measures 12.25″ when closed and 16″ when fully open, the single draw signed, ‘W & S JONES, 30 Holborn, London’. It has a 1″ objective lens and gives perfeclty clear views; all original lenses which are damage free. No dents / damage.
The telescope barrel and the walking stick are finished in black leather to emulate a tree branch.
Total length when the telescope is threaded into the stick is 37.25″.
The brass protective, slightly domed cover unscrews to reveal a small compass which is fully functional, though a little of the porcelein base has come away. The compass unscrews to access the telescope lens.
A very nice example of the period.
