The Empire Collection, by Alchemy Gothic, has rediscovered many of the astonishing, lost inventions and scientific discoveries of a heroic and insatiably adventurous bygone age, where gentlemen were recklessly courageous, and scientist-engineers were truly mad!
Alchemy Gothic's facsimiles of amazing and fantastical retro-hi-technology artefacts, created from surviving fragments and archived linen blueprints of the world famous 'Rosensteins' and their contemporary collaborators.
Alchemy Gothic harks back once more to a mythically nostalgic bygone era; the intertwining of high technology with the unexplored potential of Victorian innovation. This Steampunk range takes its cue from the conceptions of famed engineer, Ezekiel Empire Rosenstein. While his most inspired invention – the Galvanic Matter Transpositor – was laughed aside by premier pioneers of his time, recently unearthed sketches and scattered accounts have allowed Alchemy to gather enough information to demonstrate this forgotten legacy.
Rosenstein's Optical Rarefying Dilator
A gloriously versatile ophthalmic device, with option settings for X-Ray, inverted or magnified vision. Flick the switch to fire up and view from mass magnification to X-ray. This version is sadly non-functioning, although the switch and gauge are articulated. The leather strap features a press stud fastening.
With ‘RealEye’, knife-switch starter, and ‘ship’s telegraph’ adjustment technology; and adjustable fitting leather strap.

Gothic Product Information:
The metal used in the manufacture of all Alchemy's pewter products is the highest grade, 92% tin alloy, (to BSS5140 standard), known as "English Pewter". Some manufacturers misleadingly use the term 'pewter' to describe alloys containing lead. This results in inferior, more easily made products which are heavier, softer and of a darker colour, and are much more prone to tarnishing and disfigurement. This WILL NOT happen with Alchemy Gothic jewelry.
