1942 WW2 era military telescope tripod manufactured by Strand.
Originally used by the British military as a support tripod for use with an anti-aircraft “Rangefinder” telescope.
Hinged legs allow the stand to be folded or splayed wider with thumb toggles. The hinged top case opens to reveal a screw thread and internal levelling bubble.
The original paint has been hand buffed with a light wax.
A fantastic stand that could be used to hold a large spot light or industrial lamp.
