Marvelous! My first reaction was that it is nearly contemporaneous with the famed Porter Garden Telescope, so both perhaps are relics of a turn of the century garden scientific ornament obsession?
Btw, the Porter telescope has been recreated and is available (for an astronomical sum, of course) for anyone who needs a fancy garden ornament. The good news is that the company has put up a quite nice history of the telescope. See: https://gardentelescopes.com/our-story.html
