Antique 19th Century Cased Monocular Microscope For Sale

Antique 19th Century Monocular brass microscope, not signed by maker, but nonetheless very well crafted. The stage is multi adjustable and substage is adouble wheel of graded stops and darkfield stops, this is also adjustable. Mechanically the microscope seems to move as it should, the stage, the wheel of stopsand the rack and pinion focus move freely and smoothly. One of thedials for adjusting the darkfield stops needs to be reattached, just to be screwed back on. The microscope comes with three eyepieces: two top hat and a smaller one, they aren't gradedbut look to be high powered. There are a further two lenses as well. The microscope comes with four objectives, they are black enamelled and look more like early 20th century, a Watson 1/6" Para in a bakelite case, a Hawksley & sons 1/2 " oil immersion in a brass Charles Baker can, a Watson 1/2" Oil immersion in another Charles Baker can and another Watson, a 1/4" para with no can. The attractive mahagony caseis a bit scuffed by the lock as I had no key and hadto get a locksmith to open the case, otherwise it looks pretty good with an aged patina. The accessory tray in the draw has come loose too.

I will post worldwide but postage will be high on account of the microscopes weight. Please get in touch for a bespoke quote if you are outside of the UK.

A lot of people have been asking; is this a Ross? Well, it does look very similar but if it is, it hasn't been signed on the foot as you'd expect. I did have a Ross aquatic microscope but sold it on last year.
