Vintage Students Microscope No. 2 With Original Box. 1950's England.

This vintage microscope would have been used by science students in England in the 1950's (and maybe through the 60's too). It comes with it's original box which has lots of wonderful vintage lettering. 

Made in England in the 1950's by Signalling Equipment Ltd, this Students Microscope No.2 has a magnification of 70x. It appears to be working but we don't know much about the technical side of things when it comes to microscopes.

The barrel has a nice smooth movement in and out. The cast iron stand seems in solid condition. The black paint has flaked off in a few places and the label on the front of the stand has mostly worn off from use. The microscope comes with a glass plate but the original forceps are missing.

The original box is in solid condition and has lots of signs of use which adds to it's vintage charm. Covered in wonderful 1950's lettering we think the box is just as much a vintage gem as the microscope itself!

microscope when fully closed: 15.5 cm tall
box: 18.5 cm x 11.25 cm x 7 cm
