Victorian Microscope Slide – Lapis Lazuli – From Persia by Edmund Wheeler – London c1870

Short Description

Edmund Wheeler was a leading Victorian microscope slide preparer now highly collectable. He was a professional mounter from the 1860’s operating out of 48 Tollington Road, Holloway, London. He sold his business to Watson & Sons in 1884 and died the following year. He gained awards for his work in England and overseas at Philadelphia and Paris. All of Wheeler's slides must be over 130 years old.

This is a fine and beautiful example of Persian Lapis Lazuli cut micro-thin with strong contrasting colouring and clarity. Backed with Wheeler yellow paper and with his distinctive monogrammed cover paper and typical oval title labels, annotated in Wheeler’s distinctive tidy cursive hand.

Packed like treasure ... a light item despite that so postage will be reduced to actual on final billing.

A lovely example and a fine Wheeler slide – c1870

Price: $60.00
