Here for sale is a fantastic antique microscope by R&J Beck Ltd of London. R&J Beck were founded in 1843 producing a wide range of Optical equipment and based in London. This lovely brass microscope dates, we believe from the early 1900's and is complete with a beautifully constructed mahogany box complete with working key. This is a beautiful decorative piece as well as being highly collectible. It appears to be in working condition. The parts are as shown. A stunning piece perfect for any collector or to use and enjoy.


Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.


Case 15.5 cm width, 19.5 cm depth, 33 cm height
