This is a replica of a handheld Galilean telescope. It has a red leather tube which has gold tooling at intervals along the tube.

The object glass end and the eye end are both detachable from the main tube. There are lenses at both ends. The tube tapers off towards the eye end. The diameter of the object glass end is 60 mm and the diameter of the eye end is 40mm.
