Vintage brass field microscope, brass, with wooden case, marked "Made In France". Unknown age. Tiltable mirror provides illumination, focus by moving eyepiece up and down. Good condition, shows a little wear, mirror is in fine shape, no cracks, silvering intact. Stands 6" tall, 1 7/8" wide at base. T is one slide in the case marked "pollen"; the slide is broken into two pieces but I'll include them anyway. Nice box, fair condition, has a crack in the lid along the grain. No indication of manufacturer other than "Made In France". Lens is clean, it is quite usable. Very attractive, nice objet d'arte for someone in medicine or the sciences.
