A French Field/Nautical Telescope
A French Field/Nautical Telescope, circa. late 19th - early 20th Century. The telescope measures 20" closed and 35" fully extended. The optics are intact and functioning as designed (could use a cleaning). All brass with intact black leather covering (worn is some areas). The interior brass tube is signed "J Molteni, Paris". A good example ready for display or use.
