Mid-size microscope signed on the arm “Dr. Arthur Chevalier, 158 Palais-Royal”, 1870-1874.

Mahogany case (height): 29 cm, instrument height: 27 cm. Very good condition. One of the stage clips is missing. 

The microscope preserves three eyepieces, three objectives preserved in their brass canisters, all signed, and the stage mounted bull’s eye lens, exactly as described in the Arthur Chevalier catalogues (see the last image, number 28, figure 14).

As the “Dr” title is present in the signature on this microscope, it dates after 1870, so between 1870 and 1874, the year Arthur died.

An excellent example of a typical Arthur Chevalier microscope.

IT Eppursimuove


Eppursimuove is located in the northwest of Italy. I deal with antique scientific instruments and their history. This passion has turned into a profession that leads me every day in search of ancient instruments that helped us to observe, measure, explore and know the sky and the earth. They still amaze and make us wonder, as they did for their original makers and users. For this reason they must be preserved and collected. Please feel free contact me if you need more information on listed items. Thanks.
