Antique Miniature Spectroscope R&J Beck Ltd.
Antique Miniature Spectroscope R&J Beck Ltd. This is a really well made piece which is as I am told, always the way with pieces made by R&J Beck Ltd. There are a few minor blemishes to the lacquered brass, in need of a jolly good clean. Complete with Leather case. An interesting little scientific instrument. 4.75cm Long. A spectroscope helps us find out what stars are made of. It deciphers or separates, white light from a star into a very wide spectrum of colors much wider than a normal prism does. When spread very wide, black lines appear in the spectrum.
