Antique Brass/Wood Telescope w/excellent optics

Measurements:

Closed: 9.5" Open: 29" with a diameter of 2"

People refer to this type of telescope as maritime. I was unable to find any maker's mark to verify the telescope's intended usage. I do know that the barrels are brass, the protective slide cover over the eye piece is intact, and that the optics are excellent - with the original lens cap.

The largest barrel is covered with a burled walnut veneer.

Dating to the Edwardian era - possibly earlier.
