1860s/1870s Antique Victorian Folding Photograph/postcard Stereoscopic Viewer For Sale

1860s/1870s Antique Victorian Folding Photograph/postcard Stereoscopic Viewer

1860s/1870s antique Victorian folding Photograph/Postcard Stereoscopic Viewer.

Stereoscopes recreate the illusion of depth utilising the binocularity of human vision.Their popularity soared during the 19th century when Queen Victoria and Prince Albert received the gift of a stereoscopic viewer at the Crystal Palace exhibition in 1851. Their use also accelerated as camera technology improved and the interest in owning photographs grew + the sending of holiday postcards.

This is a delightful early Victorian stereoscope viewer with a nice decorated front panel. Well constructed with all hinges and viewing adjustments in working order. The wooden case has a few expected minor knocks after 150 years and some hairline splits in the wood on the top (as shown) which do not detract and give a consistant appearance with age. Both closing clasps work well.All the 3 glass lenses are in good condition and without cracks. When fully closed the case measures 9 inches by 5.5 inches and stands 3 inches high.

Lovely old historical photographic piece.
