A lockable wooden box contains a metal optical instrument mounted on a wooden base. The lock has a key in it.

The instrument is partly painted black, partly polished metal. The instrument is attached to the wooden base at three points using hinged wingnuts.

A tube-like section, ending in a polished metal handle, protrudes horizontally from the base of the instrument and ends in a circular polished metal handle. This section is supported by an elevated section of the wooden base.

Two cylindrical vertical elements, one taller than the other, protrude vertically from the instrument. The taller section ends in an optical ocular element.

The box includes another box of round glass pates, some of which are in paper packages.
