Among the accessories supplied with this microscope are three stackable objectives that can be used individually or in various combinations to vary the magnification, another high power objective that is used without the compound tube, a live box, a stage forceps, a hand forceps, a stage-mounted condenser, ivory and glass stage inserts, two dissecting tools with bone handles, and three ivory sliders.


This microscope was made by John Priston Cutts (1787 - 1858). It is signed I.P. Cutts, London (Cutts used I.P. interchangeably with J.P). While his business was primarily located in Sheffield, for a brief period in the mid 1830's, he also operated out of London. By 1840, instruments were signed J.P. Cutts & Sons, Sheffield.
