Categories: Scientific, Microscopy


An interesting model of Seibert large compound microscope with its classic but elegant V-shaped foot and its single C-shaped pillar, leaving convenient access to the fine focus knob.


The microscope comes with 8 Seibert objectives : 0, I, II, IV, V, VI, VII immersion and IX Immersion ; two eyepieces I and II Periskopisch ; a micrometer eyepiece (Hartnack type) and a goniometer eyepiece [we cannot be able to perfectly fit the micrometer eyepiece on the main tube].

The microscope have its original gimballed mirror and its rotative stage.

Fact interesting, the microscope bears on the foot, some Russian annotation handwritten. Furthermore, the case have been later replaced in a very unusual wood what let think that this later box could be Russian.

Finally a double scale have been added on the main tube for particular calculations during the observations.


The microscope is generally in good condition despite few traces of rust on the foot.

The lock of the box is loose.

Box measures 39,5x18x17 cm
