I Buy Antique Microscopes


Facebook

 

I have been collecting antique brass microscopes for over 3 decades and there are still many models that I would like to add to my collection. In addition to the antique microscopes made by both American and European manufacturers, I am interested in obtaining old microscope related accessories, which include items such as lenses (objectives, eyepieces, condensers), parts, microscope oil lamps, hand-held magnifiers, and professionally prepared specimen slides. I am also seeking early microscope related literature, trade catalogs, and other historical artifacts showing early microscopes and other types of scientific instruments. Basically, I am interested in anything to do with the history of the microscope. If you have an antique microscope for sale, please let me know about it. I will answer all correspondence

On this web site, you can see some of the antique microscopes in my collection. They date from the beginning of the 18th to the beginning of 20th century. Be sure to visit the other pages of this site in order to get a comprehensive look at the entire collection. Browse simply by viewing the pictures on different pages or by utilizing the Site Index, which is organized by the country of origin and manufacturer. I hope you find these instruments as interesting as I do.
