Very rare stereo viewer with glass plates.
Advertised in the 1900s to 1920s as 'the smallest stereocopic device in the world'.
German-made Max Skladanowsky, Berlin.
Years ago I came across the glass plates for this viewer. At the time, I wondered how to view them.
Such small plates. Now I have the viewer in my hands for the first time.
The viewer is made of cardboard. Very special to find it in reasonable condition.
The viewer works, but the lenses are in used condition. The diffuse glass plate at the back of the viewer is still there. It's kind of loose though.
The viewer comes in the original box! One side flap of the lid is missing.
The 11 glass plates of Berlin measure 6.5 x 3 cm. The box for the plates has a lid without side flaps.
The images provide a good depth effect.
Surprising quality for the format.
To compare, a photo with a standard stereoscope and a lighter; both are not included.
Please see the photos.
