Officer of the Watch telescope by Broadhurst Clarkson

A fine Officer of the Watch telescope signed, “Broadhurst Clarkson & Co., London.”  It is further engraved, “Officer of the Watch, X18”, on the eyepiece draw.  The telescope has a 1 ½” lens, is 18 ¼” long when closed, and opens to over 25” with its sunshade.  The main tube is covered in brown leather, and the telescope is finished in nickel silver.  The finish is in very fine condition with no brassing and complete leather coverage.  The eyepiece cover is missing.   The telescope has very fine optics and dates to the later part of the 19th century.
