Complete and in excellent condition
Instrument is totally complete, including thermometer, calibration plate, plasticised reading card with original envelope Bleeker, brown naphthalene bottle with rubber stopper (empty).
Everything rotates and clicks as it should. I think it looks better than the copy in Museum Boerhaave.
Nevertheless, there is some damage that needs to be reported. The metal Nd scale is worn and not easy-to-read here and there. The auxiliary mirror is slightly corroded, see the picture. The blank metal parts are slightly blotchy. The black lacquer is damaged on the back of the mirror and on the winding drum of the compensator. On the base is a minor scratch. The mirror of aluminium foin is not completely intact.
Comes with the original ash box with lock and key.
This very rare instrument is in all aspects a monument to the genius and skill of Ms. Dr. C.E. Bleeker.
