A pair of Nikon 20x120 polished steel and brass Japanese Naval binoculars, with screw focusing to the eyepieces, large shades to the objectives, mounted in a trunnion on adjustable tripod, eyepiece to end of shade, on a later aluminium and hardwood tripod, L.31in. Overall H.68in.
These binoculars have been restored and remounted within the past 10 years or so, the polished finish is bright albeit a little dusty, Nikon naming and numbering is legible near the eye piece and the binoculars are working with fixed length focus meaning that they focus at any distance, rubber eye pieces may be later, the mounting and tripod stand is all of later date but of high quality, just the top of the tripod is numbered 6675-12-131-5. Overall a handsome pair of binoculars presented in very good order.
