A very fine example of a Seibert number/stative 2 large model of compound microscope numbered 6572 and with French provenance (see below).


The microscope is superbly preserved and comes with two eyepieces (numbered I and II) and four Seibert objectives (numbered 0, II, V and 1/2 immersion). Are also preserved a triple revolver, different substage diaphgrams and a fine slide by Rodig.

The microscope preserved is major part of his original lacker, a good rotative stage with his two clips and it is in perfect working condition.

Everything can be storage in his large original wooden box.


This microscope we can date from the early 1890s’ was purchased probably at the end of 19th century by the physician Francis Munch who was received as medical doctor in 1897 at Strasbourg, then he was established in Paris and specialized in neurology. This microscope was certainly his researche microscope.
