Description

A fine brass and black enamel Ross student grade lab monocular #8737 in original mahogany case with lock and key c.1895.

Standing 12 inches tall with mechanical stage, 3 objectives, 3 oculars, a pair of unused stage clips and oil bottle for immersion objective (1/12), this microscope has a few knocks to the bright brass commensurate with age and use but is extremely tight and sure in it’s mechanics and the optics are superb. Mechanical stage with vernier, micrometer fine adjustment wheel behind the arm. Articulates just below the stage. Swinging substage filter and iris for light control from the double sided mirror (slight loss of edge silvering on concave side). Triple nosepiece for the three objectives in canisters (2/3, 1/6 and 1/12). Foot is square and very stable. A nice, functional example of the period. The case contains a list of possible magnifications and later retailer’s tag on the door and leather carrying handle to the top. Measures 13 x 7 x 7 inches.
