Description

Vintage Stereoscope with 6 Slides. The original stereoscopic apparatus was invented in 1838 by Sir Charles Wheatstone. This optical marvel took the world by storm in the mid 19th century, becoming the first ever mass-produced photographic images sold, and a precursor to the motion picture phenomena.  They were so popular that it is said that every Victorian home—regardless of class—had a stereoscope and a collection of views sold in a range of prices. It was only in 2009 that the scenic views were finally discontinued completely.
