About Us



We have been in business since 1984 as Canadaís premier full time dealer devoted solely to antique scientific instruments.† Through a network of selected pickers and active personal search, we find our instruments in Canada and thus many have Canadian provenance.†


An important part of our business involves rentals to film and theatre production companies and we are called upon by national,††††††††††† professional, and private institutions and organizations for appraisal of antique scientific collections and single items.†† We have also had published a number of articles, notably a lengthy one on fakes.†


Visitors to the Greater Toronto Area are cordially invited to visit us.† We are open 7 days a week by appointment, morning, afternoon, and evening.


Support for Collectors


One of our objectives is the support and encouragement of the††††† beginning collector. To this end, we:


 keep our prices as low as we can

 maintain a large reference library on scientific antiques to which visitors may have access.

 offer a lay away plan for articles at the advertised price over $2,000, with no interest.† That is our commitment.† The††††††† customerís commitment would be to make regular payments of an agreed amount over an agreed period (usually no longer than one year)† The item will be shipped following the final†† payment.


Our Commitment to You


We guarantee the authenticity of all items we sell.† We aim to ensure that all items are described accurately as to condition, completeness and most importantly authenticity.†
