Netherlands - Late 19th century

Model/ type nr: Prachtige verrekijker, gesigneerd, 1886, Mare Frisium
Object/device type: Binoculars / Monocle (More lots)
Condition: Good (used & in working condition with visible signs of use)

The Mare Frisium was launched as as fishing vessel from a small shipyard in Weert in 1916. The ship was built as a one-and-a-half master and equipped with fishing hoist and a trawl of approx. 2 km long.

When this fishing method became obsolete in the 1940s, the ship was sold to Germany and used as a cargo ship. In 1962, the ship was extended to its current 40 metres.

It is strange is that the year 1886 is engraved with an anchor on the binoculars, while according to history the ship was not launched until 1916. Did building the ship take that long? Or was the ship named after another ship?

I won’t be able to answer these questions, but there must be a connection between the ship and the binoculars anyhow.

The binoculars are in beautiful condition. The binoculars can be extended by means of the turning knob.

    Dat is vreemd, omdat er wel bezorgd staat.
    Wellicht kunt U even bij de DHL informeren met het verzendingsnummer over hoe en wat.
    mocht U er dan niet uitkomen, dan hoor ik het graag van U.

    Met vriendelijke groet,

    Ruud de Jonge
