A very good example, unsigned, of a dissection simple microscope with two mahogany hand-rests, the particular form, in the shape of a small house, was invented by Constantin Vérick around 1870.
The microscope is complete with its three optics of different magnification.
The house-shaped mahogany box which serves as a hand rest is in perfect condition. The plate retains its glass circle, its two valets and in addition a blackened brass slide for observations in opaque environement.
Rare complete model of its travaling box.
The box measures 287x155x135 mm
