Eastman Thin Glass Medical Slide - The Human Mouth
for a Magic Lantern 1910 - 1920s Very Rare

Measures approximately 4" x 3.3" inches which is the standard size for a Magic Lantern slide in the UK and US during their heyday. Lanterns are very rare and huge among collectors.

Types of slides range from landscape photos to pictures of animals and people. Medical slides are a bit harder to find theses days because they are in higher demand. This one is in great shape for its age and although I haven't tested it with an actual Magic Lantern (seeing as how I don't own one myself) I would imagine it would work just fine with the right machine.

Check out the rest of the medical slides I have listed in this set all of which are incredibly interesting and needless to say a little eerie to hold in ones hand. But that's more than half the charm. Perfect for any Gothic / steam-punk / obscure or antique collector.

Priority Mail is available as well as express shipping - see the additional listings in the shop. Thank you!

International Shipping quotes available upon request.
