Item specifics

Type: Scientific Instruments  
Here we have a truly magnificent Astronomical Rackwork Slide . I think about c1850 in perfect working condition.

Its Original Paper Label states : '' No. 8 This Diagram illustrates the Annual Motion of the Earth round the Sun, with the Monthly lunations of the Moon ''

The wooden base measures 7 ins x 4 1/2 ins.

As can be seen the Brass Retaining Clips and Screws have since been subject of Professional Restoration and are excellent.

The handle being of turned wood.

I have no idea as to the Makers but I am reliably informed may well be of French Origin ?
You really cannot fault this Museum Quality Piece .. the Cogs and revolving mechanism are in perfect working condition with no damage whatsoever.
