Item Title:

A fabulous 18th century single-draw pocket telescope circa 1780


Item Description:

Measuring only 10 1/2" when close and 18 1/4" when fully extended, this very fine example has remarkably good optics. It closely resembles the scope that George Washington is holding in his hand in a famous painting of him done in the 1780's.


Price: SOLD
