It’s not supposed to be from anything, but it reminded me of Jules Verne (partially because of the name).
Maybe it’s weird but I can totally imagine Phileas Fogg using it on rail and steamer. OR, Dr. Samuel Fergusson can utilize his awesome steampunk telescope ring to watch Africa below in a hydrogen hot-air balloon. How badass would that be?
I got this a while back and it didn’t work terribly well, but it’s an awesome piece to leave on a shelf next to your favorite set of Jules Verne books.
