Up for auction is an Antique Perfecscope or Stereoscope w Cards in Box.

Description: This antique 3D scope dates from the late 1800s and has a wood frame with an aluminum viewer lined by felt for the face of the user. An impressive stack of over 10 viewer cards is also included – some have illustrations, some have handcolored photos, and some have black & white photos. Many landscapes are of Wisconsin and Minnesota views.

A couple of the larger cards were issued by ‘M Nowack’, a Minneapolis photographer who advertised his work on the backs. Another large card is from ‘Elmer & Tenney’ of Winona, MN and features a view from the ‘High Water View Series of 1880-81’ documenting heavy flooding in Winona in 1880.

Viewer and cards are contained in an antique wooden box from the California Perfume Co, presumably from the 1800s also.

Materials: wood, aluminum, glass, paper

Maker’s Mark: unknown – viewer has an eagle logo on top and inside

Origin: Made in USA?

Condition: Viewer has some wear on the inside paint, but felt is in great shape! One viewer glass is missing. Many cards have had moisture damage and some are chewed on edges – all have faded or yellowed to some degree. Box has deterioration to outer material and hinges are good.
