1880's Wooden Boxed Set Of Ernst Plank Magic Lantern Slides - Candle-box Type For Sale

1880's Wooden Boxed Set Of Ernst Plank Magic Lantern Slides - Candle-box Type

Very rare and wonderful, 1880's Set of Ernst Plank Glass Magic Lantern Slides in a fantastic, original Box.


This wonderful, Original Box for Glass Magic Lantern Slides is made entirely of wood in the form of an early "candle box" with a sliding lid and an all-over paper pastedown surface. measures approx. 8 1/2" by 3" by 1 3/4" tall. Besides the all-over, paper pastedown surface there is a label on the lid that reads in part "Slides for Magic Lantern" and features the Ernst Plank Trade Mark. Further text on the label reads "12 Slides" and "Made in Germany".


The Box actually contains 16 Glass Magic Lantern representing two sets of 8 matching Slides per set. The views include wonderful winter and Christmas scenes along with comic characters, anthropomorphic animal images (including a fantastic slide with Frogs!!), Circus Scenes, etc. Although these 16 Slides fit the Box exactly, the content does not match the label and we can only assume that they are not original to the box. There is a second smaller label on the bottom of the Box which identifies the retailer as "Henry Schwarz Toys" of Baltimore - one of the famous Schwarz Brothers whose Toy Stores were among the most famous of the late 19th and early 20th century and continue to this day under the name of F.A.O. Schwarz in New York.


All 16 of the Magic Lantern Slides are in excellent condition with only light wear to the images and with no physical damage of any kind. The fantastic Wooden Box is very well preserved - sound and intact with only light wear to the all-over, paper pastedown and some wear to the original label.


A very rare and wonderful, ca1880's Set of Ernst Plank Glass magic Lantern Slides in an outstanding, original Wooden Box and a fantastic addition to any Collection!!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:

The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
