A good and cased Schieck-type German brass compound microscope, unsigned and we can date circa 1870.
The microscope has a fine focus typical from Schieck production, placed under the stage.
“The fine focus is achieved by tilting the stage. The mechanism of the fine adjustment works through a knurled knob that penetrates the lower column, which works against a spring to tilt the stage.” (see here : http://www.antique-microscopes.com/photos/Schieck-in-Berlin-1402-microscope.htm).
Otherwise, the fixed small model of microscope has a rack and pinion adjustement.
The microscopes comes with three eyepieces and three objectives.
It is preserved in its original wooden case in fine condition.
Box measures 28x12x10 cm
