Apparently c.1895 - item is in excellent condition appart from som blooming? around mirror edges.

C.Zeiss Jena in lower corner.

Nice metal clasp to front.

Inner lined with dark blue velvet which appart from minor rubbing in places is in excellent condition.

Label to inner - Sold by O.Baker  optician  244 High Holborn,London.

Instrument looks in excellent order with Steel arm and blackened metal parts.

Rear of mirror engraved Carl Zeiss Jena.

Has blues screwsin contrast to blackened metal and bright metal.

Arm stamped 984 on end.

As mentioned some hazing / blooming? to mirror edges.
