    NEAR MINT, WW2 Era / Post 1943, British John Lilley & Gillie North Shields Royal Navy Midshipman’s Single Draw Naval Telescope With Extending Sun Cover & Sliding Eye Piece Shutter. Sn 14501 - 14501

    In 1812, John Lilley, aged 24, founded John Lilley and Son in London. John Lilley is recorded as being an optician and the company manufactured nautical instruments, magnetic compasses, sextants and telescopes. In 1885 John Wilson Gillie founded Wilson & Gillie in North Shields as Admiralty chart agents and magnetic compass and nautical instrument makers. Over the years John Wilson Gillie patented many improvements to the magnetic compass and binnacle. In 1913 the two companies merged, and in 1943 were renamed as John Lilley & Gillie Ltd. After over 200 years in business, John Lilley & Gillie Ltd continue to manufacture quality Naval magnetic compass outfits. This is a near mint, British Royal Navy Midshipman’s Telescope made by Lilley & Gillie. It is made of nickel or chrome plated brass & bound in brown leather. All optics of the telescope are excellent and function as they should. The scope has an extendable sun shade, and eye piece with sliding shutter. The scope is 17 ¼” in length when closed and 25 ¼” extended. The draw is engraved with manufacturer detail (illustrated In Image 2). The telescope has a leather lens protector cover secured to the frame by a leather strap and tab. The price for this quality telescope includes UK delivery. Sn 14501
