Photographica Scientific Vintage Oak Box Opens to Reveal Magnification Mirror

£5.50

Photographica Scientific Vintage Oak Box Opens to Reveal Magnification Mirror

This purpose built box was well built for a purpose. The hinged back holding the mirror rigid whilst viewing slides, negatives or similar. There are two sized slits in the wood base to hold the slides paper or card size thickness. The above is supposition perhaps this had a further use in another scientific area. Age unknown but old reflected in the construction. An ink stain on the top bears witness to time scale plus the state of the mirror. Believe this was used when travelling to view negatives.

Dimensions: 6” Square x ¾” Depth

Condition: Repaired hinge and one missing hook clasp. Presumably 3 required for safe carrying. Two hinges on the back with original pins/nails. The mirror is tired and missing part of the silver backing on the glass through age.
