Below the stage is a large adjustable mirror and pinhole wheel. The brass objective lens is a 2/3 Crouch lens in a non matching case marked 1/4 dividing. The lens is probably not original to the microscope but it works well.The microscope also comes with a good quality eyepiece lens. The microscope appears to be in good working order and I have set it up and tested it with a few old slides (see photo). I'm sure the lenses would probably benefit from a clean but they produce a clear and bright image all the same and the microscope was easy to focus. The microscope is in good condition for its age. It has been well used and will have normal signs of wear so please don't expect it to be like new.
There are some small knocks and light scratches on the base and some tarnishing on the brass. The microscope has been cleaned and lightly polished and it displays beautifully.It comes in its original fitted case with sections to hold the lenses and eyepiece tube. There is also a pull out tray for holding slides and other accessories. The box is good quality with a brass carrying handle and the inside door is stamped Hudson & Son. However there is no key. There are some general signs of age and light marks on the box but it has developed a nice aged patina. The box measures a compact 10" high X 7 1/2" wide X 6 deep. The best description comes from the photos so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions at all please ask.
