1576837230Code 6508 Antique telescopeBrass table telescope complete with small turned brass tripod and original wooden box. English manufacture of the second half of the nineteenth century. Inside the box there is a small telescope with filter. Telescope complete with dust-proof tongue and cap with focus on two extensions, maximum length 74 cm - 29.31 inches, minimum 40 cm - 15.74 inches, height 47 cm - 18.5 inches, focal diameter 4 cm - 1.57 inches. Very good working condition.

The legend tells that a day in 1608 the son of an optician in Middelburg, Hans Lipperhey, playing with some lenses of his father, put a concave lens near his eye, having in the hand the other convex lens: with his arm stretched to the point of the cathedral’s bell tower, he saw the weather-cock larger and nearer. He showed it to his father and he fixed these lenses on a small board, making easier the observation, creating the first rudimentary instrument for optical approaching. But Lipperhey was unlucky, in fact when he sent in an application to General States of Holland for the patent for this new optical instrument, in a few days some other opticians claimed this invention.
