Powell and Lealand Iron Microscope

The Powell & Lealand "Iron Microscope"

Powell & Lealand London

The Powell & Lealand Student microscope, introduced in 1840, generally was constructed without a fine adjustment and with a painted iron base and limb (and in fact, it is often called the "Iron Microscope"). The present example is exceptional given that it has a nosepiece fine adjustment and is constructed entirely in brass.
