Miller Brothers Student Microscope


Title
Miller Brothers Student Microscope
Description
Frank Miller, who worked for Tolles, established a microscope business in New York in 1868, which closed in 1899. This microscope was found from an estate in Maine, and is not in the 1879 catalog and is a later model. The fine adjustment is similar to many English microscopes from the late 19th century. The three objectives include a signed 1/4" with correction collar by William Wales and a 1" and a lower power, both unsigned, but probably by Wales. Date approximated.
