Why Victorians felt compelled to invent weird contraptions like cachepots holding mousetraps or fire alarms in the shape of a stuffed goat head is beyond us!
Within the outrageousness of such creations, a telescope mounted on a walking stick deserves the highest praise… Its polished knob fits comfortable in the palm of one’s hand.
Rosewood of the finest selection is used for a slender, but eminently sturdy stick.
A cleverly engineered mechanism allows the telescope to be pulled up and swiveled.
Held up by the stick it can be aimed and pointed like a monocle. Do not forget to remove the cap.
Yes, it magnifies… threefold!
