ratating objective holder

The limb of this chest microscope is fixed permanently to the bottom of its case connected by a joint that allows it to fold up or down. By this means, the user can adjust the angle of use. The main tube has a double eye lens and a field lens. The microscope is supplied with a live-box, stage forceps, dissecting tools, a glass stage insert, an ivory and ebony stage insert, a number of ivory sliders, and an adjustment tool that tightens the inclination joint. The three objectives are housed in a rotating holder that allows a rapid change of the magnification.
