Description
Museum microscope by Thomas Winter of 9 New Bond Street, London, England, c. 1810
Possibly invented as a special commission, Thomas Winter's "museum microscope" demonstrates academic and scientific interest within upper-class wealth and culture.
Functionality is combined with elegance of design, with interesting specimens set into a rotating ivory mount. The microscope is therefore a "museum" of specimens, with a collection that can be easily viewed again and again.
