Seibert im Wetzlar, Microscope Stativ IV, Ca. 1890
Stock Number: FG_22033
Wilhelm (1840 - 1925) and Henry (1842 - 1907) Seibert studied optics under Carl Kellner (1826-1855). After Kellner’s early death they worked together with Ernst Gundlach and Edmund Hartnack. After acquiring Gundlach's business in Berlin, they began the production of high-quality microscopes. The No IV model is based on the original design of Ernst Gundlach, who sold his business to Seibert and Krafft before leaving for the United States. The microscope features the "C-limb" and parallel linkage focusing system, typical of several German makers of the end of the 19th century.

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.
