Original British WWI Named Royal Artillery Telescope with Carrier dated 1911 - Maker Marked
Original Item.One Only. This is a truly great example of a three draw British WW1 Artillery Telescope, still with the original markings on the tube by the eyepiece:
TEL. SIG. (Mk. III) ALSO G. S.
W. OTTWAY & Co LTD
On the brass barrel under the extendable front sun shade it is engraved with the owners name:
MAJ. R. J. SMITH. R.A.
Fully opened with extended sun shield, this telescope is 35" overall and just 10 1/2" when closed. Optics appear to be clear, but we do not have long enough line of sight to check. The barrel is clad in matured rich brown leather with most of the stitching intact. The telescope also comes its original two piece leather carrier in the same rich colored leather, complete with a pouch holding the LOW power eyepiece. The HIGH power eyepiece is currently installed on the telescope, and the lens covers on both eyepieces are present and functional. A leather shoulder strap links all the parts together, though it has been repaired at least once due to age.
A splendid clear example in wonderful condition
