Leitz Drawing Attachment

Leitz Drawing Attachment

Price: 208.33 / Euro 233.33 (Excluding VAT at 20%)

Dating from the 1920's this is a Leitz drawing attachment to fit monocular microscopes. It is rare to find these units that have all the accessory filters still in place. The mirror does show its age but without pickling or loss of mirroring. These drawing attachments depend upon a balance of lighting between the illuminated specimen down the microscope and the light available for the drawing paper hence the range of neutral density filters in the box which can be used to balance the two. Original case in good condition, a real collector's item.

This particular instrument has been well looked after and the original wooden case has been sympathetically restored to a good finish. This is a students microscope with a cut away stage to allow larger specimen study at that time. The brass work is in very good condition and there are three objectives and one eyepiece. There is a 'swing out' condenser to support the 'cut away 'stage. The mirror is in very good condition for its age. A very nice collectors item. Quite an early Watson.

Baush and Lomb Monocular

Price: 166.67 / Euro 186.67 (Excluding VAT at 20%)

This is a very early Baush and Lomb probably dating from around 1910 or possibly a little earlier. The microscope has been skilfully restored in places which makes it a very attractive instrument. Finished in brass and black which is typical of the age, it has Prior and Beck objectives which are very much in keeping with the style and age of the microscope. The general condition is excellent and the mirror shows very little 'pickling'. Separate coarse and fine focus systems. The case is modern but constructed to fit the period look. An excellent addition to an antique collection.
