OLD C BAKER INTERFERENCE? MICROSCOPE

MADE IN ENGLAND

BRITISH PATENT 639014 (ISSUE DATE JUNE 21, 1950)

1950- US PATENT 2601175 (ISSUE DATE JUNE 17, 1952 BY SMITH)

THIS IS AN OLD MICROSCOPE, ONCE USED IN A DIAGNOSTIC RESEARCH COMPANY IN NY IN CONJUNCTION WITH MT. SINAI HOSPITAL (TAG ON CASE STATES "PROPERTY OF MT. SINAI HOSPITAL").

NOT EXACTLY SURE WHAT TYPE OF MICRSCOPE THIS IS. I DID SOME RESEARCH ON THE PATENT NUMBERS & FOUND REFERENCES TO "INTERFERENCE" & "POLARIZATION-OPTICAL INTERFERENCE CONTRAST". THE DIAGRAM ATTACHED SHOWING THE PATENT # & DATE STATES "INTERFERENCE MICROSCOPE" - SO THAT'S MY BEST GUESS.

PLEASE SEE THE PHOTOS AS I CAN'T DESCRIBE THINGS WHEN I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE (I HAVE LIMITED MICRSCOPE EXPERIENCE)

THIS MICROSCOPE APPEARS TO BE IN GOOD SHAPE - IT'S BEEN STORED IN IT'S WOOD CASE, UNUSED FOR PROBABLY CLOSE TO 20 YEARS (I'VE BEEN AT THE COMPANY FOR 18 & HAVE NEVER SEEN IT USED).

IT HAS MANY MORE LEVERS, KNOBS AND FILTERS? BELOW THE STAGE THAN ANY REGULAR MICRSCOPE I'VE USED

IT USES AN OUTSIDE LIGHT SOURCE

THIS SCOPE WEIGHS 22 LBS NOT INCLUDING THE WOOD BOX IT COMES IN

PRINTED ON THE SCOPE ITSELF: "C BAKER LONDON, I/107, MADE IN ENGLAND, BRIT PAT 639014, US PAT 2601175"
