Stereo viewer

From: "Ulrich Rathgeber" Ulrich@cosmic-love.de

I have some original "Ilford Special Lantern Plates" in b&w and bromide, I think they are made around 1900. The sizes are 8,5 x 17 cm and 4,3 x 10,6 cm, most of the pictures on the glasses are stereoscope. I would like to know more about them, but find it hard to get some information. What kind of viewer do I need to see them in 3 D? What wold be an adequate price if I would sell them somewhere, for example to a museum or a collector?

For some types of stereoscopes, see our stereo viewer web page.

The best source of information about viewers is, Paul Wing. Stereoscopes: The First One Hundred Years.

You might want try The Pokescope, a modern viewer which is much more flexible in its use than most historic stereoscopes which were intended for only a single format.

For price information, perhaps you can find similar views that have been auctioned on eBay.com (advanced search, completed auctions).
