Fuji of Japan
An outstanding and powerful pair of Japanese naval binoculars, of 25 x 150 specification – (25 times magnification, and 150 mm focal objective) meaning a distance of 25 km will appear as a distance of only 1 km through the binoculars. The instrument has been beautifully restored and repolished, and although originally deck mounted, the substantial polished steel tripod stand they now sit on, is fully extendable with simple use of a crank handle.
The feet with flat caps allow them to be used on a range of flooring, (and easily relocated), if required. A plaque set to the top of the instrument reads FUJI PHOTO OPTICAL CO.LTD, Meibo – 25 x 150 2.7°-, with serial no. 27436. Japanese, circa 1950.
Length of instrument: 39 inches (99 cm)
