Antique and Vintage Microscopes
The first optical microscope was made in 1590. This discovery would lead to a new form of craftsmanship and spark new scientific discoveries from the likes of Galileo--who would develop the first compound microscope. Vintage microscopes are a work of art as well as a means to discovery. They're a link back to a time when scientists were as much craftsmen as they were scholars. We invite you to browse our selection of antique microscopes. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call us.
