A substantial and superbly engineered antique compound monocular microscope by Carl Zeiss of Jena, Germany. The serial number 103568 dates it to around 1920, and it survives in quite remarkable condition. Inished in black lacquer and lacquered brass, and is fitted a dovetailed four-turret nosepiece, substage condenser and high quality circular mechanical stage, also engraved with the Zeiss name. It is supplied with four objectives (three marked Zeiss) and four eyepieces/oculars. Ll contained within original fitted/polished case with working lock and key.
Much attention is paid to packaging with a view to ensuring that items reach buyers quickly and without damage. Most of the items I sell are antique, of high value and impossible to replace. Most items are wrapped in multiple layers of bubblewrap, before being placed in strong double-wall cardboard boxes with the void filled with a 100% recycled polystyrene loosefill. I have tried alternatives to bubblewrap but none come close in terms of the level of protection they provide.They are not always the cheapest, but do offer a professional, fast (normally next-day) service and have proper shelving in their vans, which many of their competitors do not. You can help to minimise waste by reusing the packaging wherever possible, or finding someone that can.
