This antique optometry lens testing kit includes over 170 lenses, test glasses, charts and misc related. While the velvet lined leather case for this piece is in poor condition the contents are in generally good condition. Some of the charts have water damage. The best of the charts; a hardbound set in several languages is in very good condition. There are even the Drs. unique business cards (see photos). These kits were often used by Optometrists who traveled to small towns in rural areas. It was manufactured by the Merry Optical Co., of Kansas City, MO and Memphis, TN. We are uncertain of the exact age, other than Merry manufactured these kits from 1910-the 1920’s. We have not attempted to clean the set, but beyond cleaning the lenses appear to be in good condition. Size of the case is approximately 21” x 12” x 2.5”.
