Objectives Ernst Leitz Wetzlar
I am looking for a case of objectives for an old geological polarising microscope Ernst Leitz Wetzlar 227915 (bought in 1925 in Stockholm). I lost my case by an unfortunate misunderstanding some years ago and I would like to buy one if I can find one. It had three objectives in it which were to be mounted by a type of clamp (the clamp is on the microscope).
Areometer (cylinder diameter: 4.4 cm) made of sheet iron and lead cone, both enamelled blue. In cylindrical can enamelled blue and gold (diameter: 7.5 cm, length: 29 cm).
French, unsigned, middle of 19th century.
This instrument was used for density measurements of minerals and gemstones.
Early Mineralogical Microscope for sale
I have an early mineralogical microscope by A. Picart 22, rue Mayet for sale. It is very similar to the example illustrated in Soret's "Éléments de cristallographie physique" and to the one exhibited at the "Exposition bicentenaire de chute de la Météorite de Toulouse" exhibition earlier this year.
Please contact me should this be of interest.
