The Story BehindThe earliest microscopes were called flea glasses as they were originally used to study small bugs. The first microscope was invented by Hans and Zacharius Jansen in the 1600s and has gone through numerous improvements over the centuries. Today, we can see an entire universe of minute organisms, thanks to this ingenious device.
Measurements: 4.75 X 2.25 X 1.5 (HxLxW)
Each glass ornament is mouth-blown into finely carved molds
A solution of hot liquid silver is added for exceptional color and vibrance
Ornaments are then hand-painted and hand-glittered for a fine finish
This was a gift for my college student who's a biology major. She loved it. It was one of her favorite gifts.
My Scientist LOVED IT!
I gave the microscope to my favorite son-in-law (ok, he’s my only son-in-law), for Christmas. He’s a Scientist and he loved it! I’m very particular. That said; I thought the painting on the microscope was excellent.
