A rare example of a diminutive form of a Culpeper-type microscope attributable to Benjamin Martin.

This small size Culpeper microscope with three legs straight.

The microscope is complete with three objectives, its original mirror fixes on a leg, a Bonanni stage and a stage forceps.

The microscope is housed in its original curved wooden box covered with red paper. This kind of paper is maybe for continental exportation ?

The microscope measures 25,5 height and the box measures 26,5×9,5×7,5 cm.

A pristine example of this rare form attributable to one of the major UK maker.
