ANTIQUE 19thC Cased FRENCH FIELD MICROSCOPE by GREGOIRE Optn LYON Post 1890Description:
PLEASE note that this is the last time of listing so don't miss it. You are offerding on a very interesting item. It is a late 19thC cased FRENCHFIELDMICROSCOPE(I think-due to its smaller size?), it is nicely engraved GREGOIREOptn 14 QUAI St ANTOINELYON. I believe that the word Optician was not used until after 1890.The condition is very GOOD retaining much of the ORIGINALGILDING although there is some wear as per the pictures. The BLACKENEDparts too. The mirror screw needs retightening but this is a simple job. There is a hole in the base allowing it to be screwed to a table is so desired. I bought it from the daughter of a teacher who died in 1982 at the age of 90, I think he was given it new as a present when he was quite young. He continued to use it with his students. There are some modern slides as well as some tools as per the photos again. There are some ink markings as shown but I do not know the significance of them and neither did the daughter. I am not an expert on this type of thing so your comments would be welcomed and added to the listing. It weighs 1100g unpacked. The microscope itself is approx 7 7/8ths" tall. It would make a great gift or addition to your collection.
