An original case for a Seibert microscope, measuring 23.5 x 15 x 8 cm., externally coated with brown leatherette with the gilded logo of W & H Seibert Wetzlar. Internally the case is coated with purple velvet. A white metal plaque between the two lockers is signed Lautenschläger GMBH Berlin N 39. This medical engineering company, still active today, was established in 1888. They were the retailers of this specific microscope that is missing now from the case.

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.
