3-draw military telescope by Negretti & Zambra

A brass 2 " telescope WWI telescope is signed on the first draw below an engraved military arrow: "TEL. SIG. (MKIV) G.S. NEGRETTI & ZAMBRA, LONDON, 1917, No. 24364". Total overall length including the open collapsing leather lenshade is 36". Closed length is 11". The blackened brass draws show wear consistant with age. The draws are stiff, as if not used. The leather case is good with a light "No.2 Sect." carved into it. Two eyepieces marked "High" and "Low" accompany the set. One fits onto the telescope while the other fits in a leather carry case attached by a strap to the telescope. The leather case and straps are all complete. The optics are in very good condition. This is a handsome military telescope that displays well in either open or closed position.
