A quality example of a late 19th/early 20th century Liebreich’s Ophthalmoscope.
This ophthalmoscope is the short version measuring only 95 mm and is in very good condition as is the detachable ivory handle. The leather case is lined with purple silk and is metal bound, closing with a crisp mechanism. The full complement of five smaller lenses and two larger indirect lenses are present within the lid (one of which has a peripheral chip). The front marked in gold embossed writing “Liebreich’s Ophthalmoscope”.
