The color of the wood box and the heavy-duty black microscope makes such a statement in any home decor!

This antique microscope is just waiting to sit on a shelf in your office, den, or library. The microscope is very heavy and very interesting to look at.

------------------------------------------
ITEM CONDITION:
This microscope set is in good condition, especially considering its age. All the knobs on the microscope turn easily. The glass for the light reflector has a crack in it. The microscope shows signs of wear - rubbed off paint and just the right amount of rust. The microscope was intended to be used with the light box - the electric cord to the light box is in bad condition, so we didn't even attempt to plug it in to see if the light itself works. There are two magnifying lenses in black cases that store in a pull-out tray at the top of the wooden box. There is also another magnifying piece that comes with the microscope. This piece has worn paint and small amounts of rust, the lenses appear to be intact and you can see through them. The wooden storage box has two pull-out trays at the top of the box, and both trays pull out with ease. There is a metal strap across the bottom of the box that the microscope slides into for storage. The door to the box opens and closes easily on the hinges, however, there is no longer a key to turn the locking mechanism to latch the door shut. The wooden box has a handle on the top for carrying. The bottom of the box has warped and the dove-tail joints have pulled away from the box slightly (perhaps this could be fixed).

While this microscope may not function like it did back it's early days, it still makes a very interesting conversation piece for your home.
