Both practical and decorative magnifiers have turned into great gift items while at the same time becoming highly collectable. Our little magnifiers collection is proud of its unique origins. Some magnifiers belonged to the King George II scientific instrument collection, one of them was used by a Cardinal at the Roman Curia. Another magnifier was replicated after one found in the oldest science museum in The Netherlands dating back to the 1600s.

After dinner, having enjoyed garoupa combined with a chilled Chardonnay, nothing is more relaxing than observing birds and wildlife or neighbors with a tripod mounted telescope. After all, one never knows when the TV might give out.

A telescope is intriguing and classic explorer's and navigator's tool.
Essential instruments: a compass, a sextant and a telescope. The telescope consists of a wood barrel holding an objective, a system of lenses. It is protected by brass collars and a decorative brass cap. To use the telescope, pull out the brass tubes (called drawers in Britain). The smallest tube holds the eye objective. Judiciously push in the smallest end-tube to focus.

Far-reach telescopes were rare and expensive, available only to captains of the fleet and highly ranked officers of the general staff. Our monocular is outfitted with complicated prismatic lenses. Its brass and nickel parts are expertly covered with hand-sewn leather, to withstand the wear and tear of the daily use on campaign. Magnifies 35x;
