A very impressive, fine 19th century brass Binocular Microscope, engraved on the base "Hudson & Son, GREENWICH".

The microscope stands about 15 1/2" tall in its closed position (without the wooden base). Coarse focus is by rack and pinion on a 1 1/8" square pillar, and the fine focus it controlled by a knob on the back of of the tube. The eyepieces width is adjustable by rack and pinion. The engine turned mechanical stage has X-Y control knobs. There is a 4-aperture disc diaphragm and a concave mirror (some blurry lines but usable).

It comes with two pairs of eyepieces all with eye cups, anobjective in its brass canister, and a live box.

The microscope is in very good condition for its age. All rack and pinion are moving smoothly. One of the eyepieces has a tiny chip approx. 1mm wide and 3mm long on the edge of the big lens (see photo #9, the tiny white spot on the left hand side edge), apart from that, optically is great and it delivers beautiful clear images. The scope is showing only light typical wear on the top of the draw tubes where hold the eyepieces, and few tarnishing spots on the lower end of the tube above the prism drawer. And the prism is in excellent condition. All in all, this is a magnificent instrument for your desk or cabinet!

The dove tailed mahogany case has a small drawer, brass hinges, brass handle. The case is in poor condition and missing some of its inner fixtures. There is a age crack on the back. A green paper label is stuck in the case, it reads "HUDSON & SON, OPTICIANS, GREENWICH".

Also in the case, there are few letters between the owner of the scope and W. F. Stanley in 1929 regarding fixing the prism to the prism box. The job cost the owner £3.10.0.d then .... very interesting stuff to read.


Case measures approx. 10" x 7 3/4" x 5 1/2".
