Single Draw Marine Telescope
Item Stock Code B6392 
Item Description A  large mahogany barrelled single draw marine telescope by Edward Dixey of London.

This magnificently constructed refracting telescope has a thirty seven inch barrel of brass and beautifully figured mahogany with a two and a quarter inch objective lens that has a beautiful green hue from the crown and flint glass doublet employed.

Fully extended, the telescope measures forty four and a quarter inches and has a single draw with the makers marks, “Dixey London, Improved” engraved with the writing running towards the eyepiece (the standard changed in and around the 1820 s when engraving was written away from the eyepiece). The flat eyepiece has its original protective dust slide and the telescope maintains a sharp focus.
