Norrenberg Polariscope by Secretan

The instrument is signed in script "Secretan a Paris". Fixtures include a 3" mirror set in the base, a 1 1/4" condensing lens, a diagonal polarizing glass plate with degree wheel and pointer, and a rotating, gimballed stage with glass specimen plate. The analyzer prism or stacked glass plate is not present. The 6" x 6" wood base has an accessory drawer. Except for the missing analizer, the instrument is in good condition. The brass has lost much of its lacquer and has not been cleaned.
