A rare 19th century Boynton ophthalmoscope by Meyrowitz in its original purple velvet lined leather case.
The outside of the case is marked Boynton Ophthalmoscope. The inside is marked Meyrowitch Bros 295 and 297 Fouth Avenue. New-York. The ivory handled scope itself is in excellent condition with the smallest of cracks in the ivory where it joints the scope (see pics). It has only one internal lens which swings in front of the viewing aperture. There is an indirect lens which is in perfect condition and is marked “2 1/2”.
