This is a heavy tripod for some kind of large German optics. I do not know what kind of optics they are for but the top of the tripod is well marked "Zeiss, Jena" so I assume it is for optics. The mount is completely functional. Each leg has a couple of tightening hand-screws and the legs telecope to half the length seen in the photos. Every hinge and screw works freely. The whole mount has been overpainted in black but the dark grey paint is visible underneath. The black over-paint removes very easily. I scrapped off some with my fingernail. The lower portions of the legs are blued/anodized finish underneath this black over-paint. T are very small areas of rust but no damage caused by pitting. I guarantee this tripod to be in nice condition as described. I guarantee it to be Pre-1945 German Military. But I do not know what it is for.
