Dating from the 1920’s this is a Leitz drawing attachment to fit monocular microscopes. It is rare to find these units that have all the accessory filters still in place. The mirror does show its age but without pickling or loss of mirroring. These drawing attachments depend upon a balance of lighting between the illuminated specimen down the microscope and the light available for the drawing paper hence the range of neutral density filters in the box which can be used to balance the two. Original case in good condition, a real collectors item.
