A large, battered brass telescope with no markings. The glass is missing from both ends.
A note in the old museum accession register says this telescope was "used to watch the 'rebel' Maoris during the wars 1862 (sic)." The note also records that it was the "property of Raniera Ngaire Tuterangi Tuterangi a Rangitara (sic)". It was deposited in Taranaki Museum in 1924.
