A mid 19th century nickel silver plated, three draw telescope signed, ‘L. Larghi, Optician, Bordeaux’. Measuring 32″ (81 cms) fully extended and 10″ (25 cms) closed with a main lens diameter of 42 mm, it gives a fine, sharp image when viewing with a magnification of 28 x. It has an end cap, eye slider and a black leather covered body with two eyelets for fastening a sling. A little wear to the nickel silver but the general condition is very good+.
It comes with a later wooden display stand.
