Can you identify this device?
Dec 27, 2009

I am trying to help a friend identify a magnifying device that belonged to her grandfather (1870-1950). The device is 2 5/8" high and has an adjustable eyepiece that moves up and down.

She wants to know what it is --- and what it is used for?

Thanks! for any insight you may be able to provide.
