For your consideration is a circa 1900's oak optical eye glass display case.
The top oak case with the glass window contains 40 spherical concave lenses and 40 spherical convex lenses. The middle section has 48 cylindrical concave and 48 convex lenses. The top middle section hold 39 more lenses.
The inside oak tray that holds the lenses has two brass handles one on each side for easy removal.The case measures 21" wide x 13 1/2" by 3" deep. There is a brass plate in the back that reads Bonschur & Holmes mfg. Philadelphia.
The bottom oak case has 3 drawers for holding tools, in those drawers there are pliers , lenses, bottles , tape measures, and some type of clamping tool.
This case is also in oak, has a two board top and two board bottom. The base measures 21 1/4" x 13 x 4" deep. there are two small hooks on the side for hanging a tool etc.
The overall condition is excellent. I did notice two scratches on glass lid, and a slight wear on the clear finish on the bottom top where it
rubs with the top case. Both pieces are complete and all original.This was
purchased from a locale Doctors office that closed many years ago.
