Millais Antiques

I have been interested in scientific instruments since my grammar school days, university , and then working as a DentalSurgeon, until retirement from that profession, twelve years ago. My antiques business was set up 37 years ago, having followed the footsteps of my father. Throughout this time I have dealt in scientific instruments, mainly of a military connection. This includes military instruments, microscopes, compasses, Nauticalia, Telescopes, large and small, and optical items and even writing cases.

I attend the Science Fair in,London, and other Antique Fairs, especially the IACF Fairs, at Ardingly, West Sussex, The "Military Odyssey" at Detling, Kent, and occasionaly,the Bisley Fairs, and Birmingham, at the NMM.
