Description

A very fine Ellis-type simple aquatic microscope in flawless sharkskin case.

Complete in every respect and rarely used as there are little signs of wear to the golden lacquer and glass stage insert.

Unusual complement of lenses (2 Lieberkuhned and 2 normal with adapter collar-all lenses/beads intact).

A tear drop protective felt covered card to prevent friction between the slotted stage insert and the mirror (99% silvering).

Best example on the market with both hooks and hinges intact. Flawless case liner. Given the accessories and attention to little details, this could only have come from the Dollond workshop. Good optics. Stage forceps, glass stage insert, hand forceps. Sliders available, if wanted.
