A Good Rosewood Brewster-Type Stereoscope/Viewer
Description: Offered is a good Brewster-type stereoscope/viewer in French polished rose wood. The viewer is of typical form with the two angled lenses at the front on a fold down panel with a small brass catch at the top. The swept body has a shaped door with a ivo-bone-ery nob at the top and a glass mirror to the underside. Inside the viewer is a black plated wooden plate seperating the two sides. At the back is a ground glass screen and at the side is a slot to take the cards.
The viewer comes with 5 various stereo views, a glass slide of breaking waves, a domestic victorian sceen of people using a stereoscope, Tintern Abbey, Victorans watching a play called 'He Would Be An Actor', dated 1869 and another domestic Victorian sceen.
