Vintage Franklin Mint Discovery Telescope Max 14½ Inch Tall

Superb rare bright brass ornamental single lens tabletop telescope by Franklin Mint. Probably dated to the latter half of the 20th Century.

The Franklin Mint is a private currency printing company founded in 1964 by Joseph Segel in Wawa, Pennsylvania. The company is now owned by Sequential Brands Group, New York City, New York. For fifty years The Franklin Mint produced and sold “collectibles” such as gold and silver coins and medallions.

Condition: Fair. A few minor scratches. Could do with a good clean and polish. Lens missing from wider end I think but I am not sure whether there should be a lens as I cannot find reference to it. So I have reflected a missing lens in the price. Small adjuster nut also appears missing but doesn’t affect adjustment.

Approx Size: Telescope length 11″ (28cm) Stand Height: 10½” (27cm)

So I have reflected a missing lens in the price. Small adjuster nut also appears missing but doesn’t affect adjustment. Seen these sell before for £80 to £100 so worth restoring for someone.
