Vintage Brass Telescope Keyring
This brass telescope key chain is both adorable and functional, featuring a brass and copper telescope key fob. Crafted from solid brass and copper, this key chain is as beautiful as it is durable and functional. A knurled knob allows you to easily and securely add or remove keys from the ring.
The original nautical telescopes were crafted from leather and wood, often with brass fittings, and as quality metal production increased later came to be produced in solid brass. The telescope on this brass key ring is something that these 18th century sailors would have used to spot approaching ships, enemy targets, and obstacles in the high seas. Each of these brass keychains depicts a significant part of history; a tool that literally and figuratively changed the way we see the world.
