Description

Up for sale is a C. Reichert Wien Jug Handle Continental style microscope circa 1917-1918 according to the serial number which is 44721.

The instrument is typical Continental style with a jug-handle affixed to the rear of the stage and three objectives.

The coarse focus on the instrument is by rack and pinion, and the fine focus is by a micrometer knob. Both the coarse and fine focusing knobs rotate easily and smoothly

The substage Abbe condenser has a variable iris diaphragm and swing out filter holder. The iris diaphragm opens and closes smoothly and the substage rotates out easily.

The mirror is two sided. One side appears to be flat while the other is convex. The convex mirror has some clouding around one edit and a couple of spots in the middle. The flat mirror appears to be clear.

There are three objectives included on the microscope. These include the following: C. Reichert Wien No.3; E. Leitz Wetzlar No. 5; and a Oel Immersion E. Leitz Wetzlar 1/12.

The only thing we see missing are the slide clips.

The eyepiece slide in and out easily as does the extensible eye tube which has a scale from 140 to about 195mm.

This microscope is rather and tarnished. We haven’t tried to polish it and have only given it a wipe down to remove some dust. With a good cleaning and polish it will really shiner!

This instrument measures about 12" by 6" by 4”. The wooden carrying case measures 12 7/8” x 8 1/4” x 6 3/4”.

The wooden case is in very good condition! It still has the key and it locks and unlocks easily. All of the corner joints in the case are dovetailed. It has a heavy cast iron handle which pivots. Inside the door is a rack to hold extra eye pieces and objectives. There is also a small slot at the back which holds a filter.

The filter is shown in the last photo to the left. We aren’t sure just where it goes as it is a little larger than the filter holder on the substage.

This is a very heavy piece which in the case weighs in at 12 1/2 pounds!

A fantastic antique microscope, perfect for display!
