Carl Zeiss, founder of the German optical company Carl Zeiss Jena, now Carl Zeiss AG, developed and worked with microscopes from the 1840s until close to his death in 1888. The company continues to produce microscopes and distribute them internationally, and this particular model is an early 20th century model. It was used at University of Queensland and then placed in their Museum of Microscopy. The entire microscope collection was donated to Queensland Museum in 2002.
