Nachet's Grande Modele Microscope

Description: Offered for Sale is a Nachet ‘Grand Modele’ microscope. C.1870 signed on the side of the limb in copperplate script”NACHET ET FILES, 17 Rue St Severin”. This large and impressive microscopes extends to 15inches(38cm) when fully assembled.

The microscope stands on a very heavy lead-filled brass foot which supports the main limb on top of two large architectural turned brass columns each terminating in trunnions. At the base of the microscope is an unusually complicated articulated arm which holds the hexagonal plano-concave mirror in a gimbal. Above the mirror is the sub-stage assembly which can be slid out on a dovetailed slot if its use is not required. The sub-stage should have a long lever to focus it but this is missing

The mechanical stage has X-Y movement via a screw and rack assembly with 2 sliding slide clips. The whole of the microscope above the stage can be rotated on the optical axis through 360 degrees. At the back of the stage is a fine focus screw and course focussing via double wheels acting on rack work.

In all this is a rare instrument that needs a bit of restoration and care.

Condition: Cosmetically the microscope has lost some lacquer over the years. Mechanically all the moving parts work well with no noticeable slack or wear. The focussing lever is missing from the sub-stage. The small steel locking pin to stop the microscope falling forward has sheared off underneath though this could easily be replaced. The micrometer assemble is missing from the eyepiece. Optically the microscope is missing its objectives bit the eyepiece is in good condition.

Dimensions:
15inches(38cm) when fully assembled
