Rare Antique Brass Linen Prover, Microscope. Focus, Complete with original case. Complete with original brass case, this well engineered and well made item has stood the passing of time extremely well, and now makes a good collectors item. Or a very unusual gift for anyone involved in the world of fabrics.
The most elementary types had no facility for focusing, but others with screw focus were also available. They came in models supported by a single pillar, two pillars or even three.
Some of my previous feedback. Feedback doesn't give much space and sometimes you want to say more. This buckle looked larger in the photo but the real thing is better - so delicate and so wearable!It's a very special thing, so much history, really quite magical and where could you find something like that on the high street? I shall treasure this, and it was so beautifully presented too. And it is really a beautiful thing.
Nothing better as a gift than something so magical. Hi, This item is perfect, and many thanks for the button, looks great in my daughters project display. The earrings you sent me last week, a present for my daughter, were fantastic, so I thought I'd order something for me D.We have carefully cleaned it, to remove surface corrosion and debris and to show its original faces. The newly cleaned surfaces have been sealed with museum approved conservation resin, or micro crystalline wax. Both wax and the resin seals the surface against wear, moisture ingress, finger marks etc. Your item is unique, there may be similar items, but there is not another one exactly the same, anywhere in the world.
Look after it, it can only increase in value. Care and cleaning, an occasional brush with a soft brush or cloth will keep the dust off. Do not use polish or abrasives. Old Bronze often has a wonderful malachite green patina, this patina is a product of age, and cannot be recreated. Where this patina is present we carefully clean the item, and seal it without damaging the patina.
