Description

A GERMAN CUFF-TYPE MICROSCOPE, c. 1770

 

A flat brass plaque mounted on top of the microscope drawer holds a plano-concave mirror and stepped stand which supports a central rectangular brass pillar behind with screw adjustment.

Sculptural triform stage with each arm surmounted by a fleur-de-lis, the stage with spring specimen slide holder.

The entire microscope mounted onto an oak drawer which contains stage forceps and stage lens, with an ivory slide.

Height 45.5 cm, 17 7/8”.

 

This microscope can be used as a compound or – unscrewing a part – as simple.

 

Undoubtely inspired to the Cuff pattern, this microscope has no other similar to compare with; nicely made, it still retains its laquer and it is in working condition.
