Nice example of a good quality antique microscope in a fitted wooden case, complete with an objective lens and an eyepiece lens. The microscope itself is made of brass and stands on a heavy cast Y-shaped base painted black. The eyepiece tube can be manually adjusted to provide the coarse focus and there is an additional screw at the back of the microscope which provides the fine focus.
It has a square stage with two slide clips and a mirror below to direct the light. There is also a rotating dial directly below the stage with various sized circles cut out of it which can widen or narrow the window of light that shines onto the subject. The microscope comes with a good quality eyepiece lens and an objective lens marked'1'. The microscope appears to be in good working order and I have set it up and tested it with a few old slides. I'm sure the lenses would probably benefit from a light clean but they produced a clear and bright image all the same and the microscope was easy to focus.
The microscope comes in it a fitted wooden box with sections for the lenses. The box is sturdy with a nice aged patina and comes with its original working key.
Is approximately 10" long X 5 1/2" wide X 4 1/2 deep. Overall the microscope is in good condition for its age and displays very nicely. It has been used and will have normal signs of wear. The brass is slightly tarnished and the lacquer has worn slightly in places but nothing detrimental.
