I am a 17” tall Marine Telescope, originally born in London, 1920 when nautical telescopes like myself were used on ships to observe distant objects. I like to be called a pirate telescope because that was the time in history when pirate ships were not a fantasy but a reality. I have been replicated many times since the early 18th century, given different looks, changed, and improved.

These days I have been called a spyglass, a boat telescope, or simply a brass telescope. One thing is clear – everybody who values history and fine things loves me as I make a very unique captain’s gift, marine corps gift, or simply a surprise gift to somebody you are having a hard time thinking of what to gift! I adapt it quickly and turn it into a cozy home décor or a boat gadget.

I promise that I am not going to disappoint you! I look as good in person as I look in the pictures. My leather is genuine and soft when you touch me. The brass metal parts are made to look antique. The engravings I have are sharp and presentable. I shrink nicely to fit into a 6” leather case when you don’t need me.

I forgot to mention that my ancestor is John Dollond who is the one that invented me a long time before I was born. Uncle Dollond was an English optician who held a patent for the lens that became a game-changer in the making of reading glasses and instruments like mine.
Can’t wait to meet you!
