This scarce instrument is, according to von Haugwitz ( in Hirschberg), the “Retinscope Disc of Rindfleish, 1892.” See Vol II (part 2) of Hirschberg’s HISTORY OF OPHTHALMOLOGY, Bonn, 1886: figure 85, page A36. He notes that: “Rindfleish designed in 1892 a Rekoss disc to simplify the changing of lenses during retinscopy”(1986:A37). The handle is ebonized wood. Very good overall condition.
