The case bears a plaque with the name of a previous owner, Dr. David G. Yee. It was purchased in Bombay around 1950 as a gift for Dr. Yee and therefore, he is not the original owner. However, written in faded ink on the bottom of the magnification chart is a signature and the name of an institution: St Francis College, Bombay (established in 1859).
