Telescope lens cap: HMCS Victoria
Removable brass lens cap from 19th Century single draw telescope (REL34389.001) acquired from HMCS Victoria - a steam sloop operated by the Victorian Government from 1856 - 1896. The cap was originally finished in polished metal with a protective varnish coat. The cap has been cracked and then repaired with plain solder. There is evidence of a scratched inscription inside the cap.
