A Rare Lacquered Late 19th Century Pocket Spectroscope, Cased:
A rare lacquered late 19th Century Pocket Spectroscope, cased - no maker's name that I can find but this is a beautifully made instrument that still works well, the optics and adjustable slit being in good order, adjustable focus. The lacquer work is generally good but there are some scratches on the inner slide. Overall dimensions - length (closed) 86 mm, diameter 19 mm, weight 44 g. Original case is velvet lined and covered in rather dusty shagreen, the original brass catch is in good order. A difficult item to find and an excellent addition to any collection of early scientific instruments. Signed-For Second Class Post (UK, uninsured so at your risk) will cost £4.70, Special Delivery (UK overnight insured postage) will cost £7.22. I only send to overseas buyers if they pay for insured and tracked shipping - Europe and the rest of the world £9.80. I will, of course, combine postage on multiple purchases. Payment by Paypal or direct bank transfer in Pounds Sterling (GBP - all charges paid by sender). Please check out my other sales. Best of luck.
