In 1892 Alexander Thomas Clarkson went into partnership Robert Henry Broadhurst . They made quality optical instruments. In 1915 trading as 'Broadhurst, Clarkson and Co’ the business was listed at Farringdon Road London. During WW1 as part of the war effort, the company set up further telescope factories in Watford, and a lens-making facility in central London producing optical instruments for the British War Dept. This is an excellent British WW1 Officer’s Private Purchase 3 Draw Telescope similar in construction to War Dept contract Broadhurst, Clarkson and Co telescopes of WW1 . It is made of leather covered brass. It measures 28” extended and 11” closed. One draw is signed ‘Reconditioned For John Barker & Co Ltd Kensington W8 By Broadhurst, Clarkson & Co’ (illustrated). The eye piece has a sliding shutter. The front section of the telescope has a sliding sun shade. It is complete with its original leather lens caps with shoulder strap and adjustment buckle. The shoulder strap is perished in places consistent with age and use. Attached to the shoulder strap is a leather cased additional brass eyepiece which also has a sliding protective shutter. The casing of the eyepiece is marked ‘Low’. All optics of the telescope and additional eyepiece are excellent and function as they should. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 14984
