Italy

Object: Pietro Merli, Milan, Topographic theodolite (More lots)
Material: Brass, Steel
Estimated Period: around 1890
Country of Origin: Italy
Condition: Good condition - used with small signs of aging & blemishes

A 1890 theodolite by Pietro Merli, a rather unknown maker of topographic instruments from Milan.

The theodolite is regarded as the top among topographic and geodesic sensing tools because it allows to define the position of a sighting point both horizontally and vertically thanks to its azimuthal and zenithal circles which are graduated through the full 360 degrees and sub-degrees, thus defining the exact location of the pointing telescope. In addition to this there is also a high precision compass, of fundamental importance in surveying unexplored territories and mines.


Dimensions of the instrument: Height 23 cm, maximum width 15 cm.

  • Tenía más daños de los que se explicaban y no se podían ver en las fotos. Tenía un filtro solar roto, el telescopio inoperativo y su soporte roto.
    Demasiado deteriorado!!
