WW1 Imperial German Carl Zeiss 'Rabbit Ears' Trench Optics & Tripod
A superb display piece being the ' Rabbit Ears' trench optics from the WW1 period.
In the classic light field green grey of Imperial Germany these are constructed in brass & were seen being used in camouflaged observation positions by Imperial German troops.
Well marked by the acknowledged optic maker 'Carl Zeiss Jena' they are in good used condition with graticuling to right lense . Much of its green gray paint remains with some wear & age bubbling in places. The designation marking of ' S.F.09 Nr ' is visible with Carl Zeiss Jena well marked. The German wording ' Klemme losen bevor Arme bewegt werden. can be seen to right arm. Eyepieces are used but intact.
The focus on both lenses appears to be non functional with some loose internal particles visible when looked through.
Coming in their correct leather case this has suffered some dry flaking to leather with long strap at rear dry & detached at one end.
An excellent German trench display piece!
