Wanted: Antique Microscopes by Benjamin Pike and successors.

Purchasing brass microscopes by Pike Maker, Benjamin Pike & Son, or Pike's Sons.

Benjamin Pike Senior emigrated to the United States in 1804. He established an optician's business in New York supplying scientific instruments. His three sons, Benjamin Jr., Daniel, and Gardiner carried on in the business with the father and later on their own, sometimes as partners and, at other times, as competitors. They also imported and sold microscopes made in Europe.

Also buying all other kinds of antique brass microscopes and accessories. Old microscope oil lamps, prepared slides, and slide cabinets. Other types of antique scientific instruments also wanted.

Here are some links and images of Pike microscopes in my collection as well as some that were imported and sold by the firm:
