Antique stereoscope, also known as a stereopticon or stereoview. A fabulous steampunk style gadget used to view stereo cards, one of America’s most popular forms of entertainment in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The still picture cards combine two images to create a 3D effect for the viewer. Some even introduced color, which could only be seen through the view finder.

This stereoscope is probably missing it's original handle, which would have protruded downward from the base for easy holding, but can just as easily be held around the wooden eye wrap. The stereo card would be hand held at the end of the viewer with your opposite hand.

No makers marks. There are a few imperfections, as photographed. Most notably some chipping of the wood eye wrap, an exposed nail holding in one of the glass panes, and some very minor chipping to the glass panes themselves.
