Night telescope - inscription
This achromatic telescope has a mahogany barrel and a single brass draw tube without a mechanical stop. The other brass fittings include a sliding eyepiece cover and a mount for inserting the telescope into a stand, attached to the bottom of the barrel. The objective lens cap is missing. There is no maker's name but the word 'CALCUTTA' is inscribed on the draw tube.
