Description

A good and large (full size for a No. 1 stand) bright brass, bullseye condenser by Broadhurst, Clarkson & Co., 63 Farringdon Rd. London, E.C. c.1900.

Standing 30 cm. tall (fully extended) with a 25 cm. arm terminating in an anodized brass bound ring to the 5 cm. plano convex lens, this microscope accessory could be used in conjunction with a B&C microscope or a stand alone desk adornment.

Not without it’s minor faults (due to improper shipping), it has not been trifled with. Sturdy construction using 1.5 cm. brass tubing and affixed to a leaded 8 cm. base. This condenser was a serious accessory for a large binocular microscope.

There is a minor scuff on the proudest part of the convex side of the lens, a scratch to the base and a small (1/2 cm.) dent to the brass upright near the base. Polished to a high gloss finish and a real show stopper. Fully adjustable in all dimensions (axes).
