Antique Edwardian Stereoscope viewer. A stereoscope provides each eye with a lens that makes the image seen through it appear larger and more distant and usually also shifts its apparent horizontal position, so that for a person with normal binocular depth perception the edges of the two images seemingly fuse into one "stereo window". Stereoscopes enjoyed several waves of popularity from the 1850s to the 1930s as a home entertainment medium for the middle classes. Primarily of timber construction with glass lenses. Slider for focus and hand grip below. This item will include a bundle of 50+ antique/late vintage stereo photocards of various different subjects. This listing is for one viewer, the other viewers and stereo photocards shown in our images are for reference only and not included in the sale. Please review high resolution images for condition. £120.00 including postage to U.K. zone 1 addresses. For postage costs to addresses outside U.K. zone 1 and overseas postage please enquire prior to placing your order thank you.
