Antique Georgian Lacquered Brass Folding Botany Microscope Flea Glass For Sale

An antique lacquered brass folding botany microscope, I think sometimes called a flea glass

This will date to early 1800's and possibly a little earlier, I think they were first made in the late 1700's

The nut seen bottom pic 4 seperates and one part has flat sides, enabling it to be attached to the protruding bar, the blued steel forceps then slot through the nut, the spike part forming a handle and allowing the forceps to be slid towards the lens

The condition of all parts is good, the lens clear and with good magnification, most of the lacquer remains and the handle also good with no splits or chips.

Measures from the top of the lens to the bottom of the handle 3 3/4 inches the protruding bar measures 2 3/8th inches

The case is present but as seen in poor condition, one end split and the other end missing

I am happy to combine multiple buys bought within 7 days and so reduce the postage costs, If the weight exceeds 2kgms this would not be possible so please check first

UK buyers can pay by either chq or Paypal Overseas buyers please pay by Paypal only.
