VINTAGE PARABOLIC CANDLE HOLDER w/ REFLECTOR & MAGNIFYING GLASS - RARE to FIND. It is now a beautiful and rare piece of art, but this was originally used in the early 1900's as a Parabolic medical magnifying candle lamp.
The candle holder appears unused and the magnifying glass is very clean - overall. It is in absolutely fabulous condition. The reflector has minimal spotting (this should be polished with cotton occasionally).These little spots have little effect on its overall appearance. The device was designed so the magnifying glass can be raised and lowered by releasing the round knob and it would provide a strong light and magnification for the medical procedure the surgeon was currently working on. I have shown all sides of the device and the last picture is of the inside. Let me know if you need additional photos. Again, this is a very rare item and even more so in this condition. Measurements: 19" x 12" x 6. The item "VINTAGE PARABOLIC CANDLE HOLDER with REFLECTOR & MAGNIFYING GLASS RARE" is in sale since Tuesday, December 17, 2019.
