Here we have a fascinating collection of around 430 antique microscope glass slides in a mahogany case. There are 20 trays most containing 22 slides. There are 430 slides within this fantastic collection, of a range of subjects and a range of makers from different periods I guess all or majority pre 1900 or around about. There doesnt seem to be any modern looking slides. In this set there also There seems to be plant life, fossils, animal and bug specimens, marine, chemicals etc.
Some from around the world and some dates 1890s etc including medulla and cerebellum dog, and fatty acids, sulphate of copper, cat colon and skin of different fish as a range. Too many to list and a huge amount to go through as you can imagine. The mahogany two door case measuring 400mm tall 365mm wide and 235mm deep and in great condition with slight signs of age related wear, it has the little key to open the spring loaded catch lock and on the left door a top and bottom latch.
Some of the draws are a bit stiff to get out may need a wax up to slide a bit better. An amazing piece of social and scientific history in an amazing fitted case of super high quality. If any further info or photos are required we should be able to help.
