Fantastic old large cast iron MICROSCOPE which we thinks dates to around 1930-1940...we have just had retired scientist look at it and this is his estimate of it's age. There are no makers marks that we can see. This is quite a large piece measuring 21 inches from the rim of the eye-piece to the bottom reflector glass. The metal stand has a base diameter of 8 1/2 inches. The piece is "As Found"....it needs a paint 'touch-up' here and there to make it pristine. The microscope comes with 6 boxes of glass Petri Dishes ….. we think this instrument was used in the New Zealand Dairy industry for analysing samples from Cows.
A fabulous 'DISPLAY PIECE".
