There is no makers mark on it that we can ascertain. The telescope probably dates to the 1960s. There are some minor dings along the body of the telescope. The wood legs are intact and the brass screws for adjusting the leg height are in place as well.
The chain that holds the legs together is also in place. The viewing end lens and the large lens are both in place.
The end cap on the large lens is in place on a chain to hold it when taken off. The lenses show dirtiness, but no cracks or blistering. The adjusting screw for the viewing lens is operational. There are 3 lenses that we can see. Two at the end your eye goes and then the large lens at the other end.
There is no slide or cap for the small lens you put your eye to to protect it. The telescope is 37-3/8" tall, by 38-7/8" across (with lens in full contracted position), by 2.5" wide at the cap of the large lens by 1-7/16" at the small lens. The body of the telescope will be detached from the base and legs. So, expect to have to do some re-assembly. Other items that can be seen in the pictures are not included, only the telescope described here.
