Site Index - Antique Microscopes


The list of microscopes presented below is organized with respect to the country of origin and further with respect to the instrument maker (in alphabetical order). Use the drop-down menu link above to choose the country of origin.

In dating the instruments presented on this website, use was made of whatever information happened to be available. Such information consists of the maker's name and address, dates on the microscopes or documents that accompany the microscopes, manufacturer's archives, lists of serial numbers vs. dates of manufacture, or copies of original delivery books (if available). In addition, use was made of journals, manufacturer's catalogs, and books that are contemporary with the instruments as well as more modern reference books and catalogs of established museum collections. In some cases, the dates are accurate to within the actual year of manufacture, while for others, the dates are only extrapolations or approximations based on the style of the microscope or other information.
