Nice golden lacquer on objectives and wheels, square stage with one slide holder, fine focus working and gross focus working as well.

This microscope was originally constructed in compliance with a generally expressed demand for a simple, relatively low-price and well-made instrument, which is adapted to every grade of work, and claim that in it we have a model which possesses, in an eminent degree, these qualities. Probably no low-price instrument has ever been offered the public, which has been so favorably received and met with such ready sale as this.

It is of chaste design, its parts are all calculated to bear the strain of every-day work, and on this account and because of its simplicity, it may be used by inexperienced hands, without detriment or injury to it. This microscope especially recommends itself by requiring a smaller pecuniary outlay than any of similar construction, and may be supplied with valuable additions, such as our revolving and glass stages, mirror-bar with adjustable mirror and sub-stage, all of which greatly increase the efficiency and add but little to the price of the instrument.

The tripod base, pillars and arm, are neatly japanned; the axis is arranged with strong bearings to allow inclination of the body to any angle.

For your consideration is a vintage brass microscope made by Bausch and Lomb Optical Co., Rochester NY. Has a patent date of Aug. 24 ‘
