This one of a kind light box is made with a vintage magic lantern glass slide and industrial steel, merging history with modern art. This slide is an original and was manufactured somewhere between the 1890’s and the 1940’s. It is not a reproduction.

THE METAL IS FLAT, NOT FLAKED AS SHOWN IN THE 2ND PHOTO.

The light box measures 4” x 4.25” and requires a 4 watt bulb.

*ABOUT MAGIC LANTERN SLIDES*:
Lantern slides are positive images on glass that were intended to be projected for viewing. These slides came into wide use in the United States after the 1860’s. During the 1890’s, magic lanterns were in high fashion as an extension of photography. Lantern slide shows, or the magic lantern, became popular home entertainment and served as an accompaniment to speakers on the lecture circuit, as a teaching aide in classrooms, and in movie theaters for advertising and coming attractions.
