A good European copy of a Cary/Gould simple/compound microscope c.1850.
Strange accessory design (forceps and bullseye) but the rest is standard and functional. Missing the tiny objective for the compound tube and only one objective for the simple set up but otherwise complete. Draw tube and rack and pinion focussing, one sided mirror, bone stage disc, live box insert, bullseye and stage forceps. Mounts to the top of case (excellent with both hooks intact). Stands 9 inches (22 cm.) tall and the case measures 6 1/2 x 4 x 2 inches (13 x 10 x 5 cm.). A good collectable piece with odd accessories. Unbranded.
