This is an antique telescope dating to the early 20th century.

The lenses are in good order offering a crisp, sharp image at a magnification of approx. 30x. The achromatic objective lens is 55mm in diameter whilst the eyepiece offers a swivel filter, moderating lens, option.
The oak tripod mount displays appealing patina, features metal tips and is easily attached offering an operational height of 86cm (34"). The clamp engraved with the military arrow and 'Blunt & Wray, London, 1916' on one side and 'Sig. Tel. Stand, Mark V, No. 22988' on the other.
