Description

This is a rare and nice set, but unfortunately, it has issues, and I offer it for restoration or parts. Someone in the past replaced the case hinges, but the original broken hinges were still in the case and will be sent to the buyer as they can be restored by a professional. The weight set is incomplete. The scales are in good shape with the nice patina that has not been cleaned.

IL Gilgamesh

Gilgamesh was the mythological hero of the cultures of ancient West Asia, who set out on a journey in which he sought youth and eternal life.
Fleaglass Gilgamesh is located in Israel. As an archaeologist researching the material culture of the distant past and using the microscope as a major research tool, for more than two decades I have collected microscopes from the first 300 years of existence of this amazing tool and researched the cultural context of their use. Passion has become an obsession and I cultivate the full and almost unique West Asian collection of historical microscopes. Respectively, I put up for sale surplus or interesting items from the collection. I would be happy to advise any interested collector free of charge. Needless to say, I would love to send photos, information and bibliographic references, and discuss the sale details of the items offered here for sale.
