Description: Macintosh HD:Users:grahammarsh:Desktop:lplbin1.jpgA pair of Antique Brass Galilean field glasses or Binoculars, impressed around each eyepiece THE LIVERPOOL. These type of field glasses were made from the middle of the 1800s until optical prism technology overtook the simple Galilean optics in the early 20th century. These, all brass, binoculars are in good condition with brown leather covered barrels, and sliding ray shades. The optics are fine and free of any significant scratches, chips or cracks and they focus smoothly giving a clear image. They measure just under 6 inches in length with shades extended and compress down to 4 inches for storage. The main lenses are 2 inches diameter, and the general finish is very good for the age. A fine example of this mid 19th century instrument. - 35
