Cast iron base and then a hinged ironwork flange holding the slide holder and Mirror. It was made to sit on a table top or desk and the Whole thing is height adjustable in two places on the stand and slight holder. The Objective lens has a Vernia scale engraved into the class to help with measuring. The mirror glass is a little bit perished but I guess would still work to do the job intended which was to reflect light onto the viewed object.
Overall it is usable but as well as this it is a very decorative shelf piece or a welcome addition to a collection. The item "Antique Horizontal brass microscope 1890 Scientific instrument" is in sale since Sunday, November 14, 2021.
