Day or night telescope - inscription
The barrel of this telescope is lacquered and decorated with red and gold flowers. The three draw tubes are brass, as are the other fittings, including a sliding eyepiece cover. Achromatic telescopes like this example were used on board ship for making general observations, although this one is unusually decorative.
