This expandable hand telescope was made in India in 1982 and acquired by Dogbotz Boneyard in 1986. This unique device is in excellent condition and measures 7.25" in length when folded and 19" when fully extended. The telescope also has a glare shield. A nice brown leather sewn cover protects the telescope when fully closed. The piece can then be placed in its wooden storage box, which has matching brass hardware. Though the telescope is less than 20 years old, it is definitely a usable and unique piece for any home office or library. It is also an extremely collectible item for mariners and star-gazers.
