This telescope has a parallel mahogany barrel. The objective lens appears to be a replacement. It has three brass draws, each of which has had repairs. The segmented eye tube is missing one lens and may be missing a brass segment. The flared eyecup has a seized swivel cover. The largest draw is signed "Ramsden, London" with the eye tube to the left.
