    The firm of W. F. Archer was established in 1848. It is presumed that the initial business was focused on optical devices, as they were later identified in ads as manufacturing opticians. In the early 1880s, Archer & Sons became known for their high quality, oil and lime light, Optical Lanterns. They were acknowledged in the British Journal of photography in 1884 and 85 to be superior to all others. They received medals from the Liverpool International Exhibition in 1886 and Photographic Exhibition in 1888. In 1888 they were located at 43 Lord St. Liverpool, England. In the 1890s several ads appeared for cameras of their manufacture. The first being the Archer combined camera. The later ads indicate that they were located at 73 Lord St. Liverpool, England. The last reference found is a 1903 advertisement for the Automat folding hand camera. This is an excellent Archer & Sons 4 draw telescope made at their 73 Lord Street address C1890-1903. It is made brass & bound in brown leather. All optics of the telescope are excellent and function as they should. The scope is 7 ½” in length when closed and 23 ¾” extended. One draw is engraved with manufacturer detail ‘Archer & Sons 73 Lord Street Liverpool’ (illustrated In Image 2). The telescope has a removable brass lens protector cap and sliding eye piece shutter. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 14985
