This portable telescope has a mahogany barrel, a single brass draw tube and a two-lens eyepiece with a sliding cover. The objective lens probably once had a brass cap (now missing). The maker's name is inscribed on the draw tube as 'Mrs Janet Taylor, 104, Minories, London'. Janet Taylor (1804-70) was a gifted astronomer and author and was one of the very few women working as scientific instrument makers in London in the 19th century.
