ANTIQUE ALL-BRASS COMPOUND MICROSCOPE WITH CABINET c1870
ANTIQUE ALL-BRASS COMPOUND MICROSCOPEWITH CABINET c1870. This company later became Broadhurst Clarkson in the early 1900s. Looking at the design, the microscope dates from about the last quarter of the 19. This inclinable and semi-portable all brass instrument has coarse adjustment by rack and pinion, revolving stage with sub-stage diaphragm, double-sided mirror (good condition), one eyepiece and double nosepiece, and 1/8. (the latter made by Reynolds & Branson of Leeds 1890 to 1900+) objectives in canisters. Two legs fold out to give stability (I have never seen another microscope with such fold-out legs). The original lacquer has been retained for the most part, though there are blemishes. The rack isreasonably smooth, but the covering of the stage is damaged. The microscope has been tested and seems optically sound. The fitted mahogany cabinet has 2 sections bottom drawer with lock and key (locks ok, but unlock problematical), and a top section with lockable lid (snatch lock and key). There are some accessories as shown in the photo. All invoices will be included. Please note that this item will only be posted to UK addresses.
