Pleased to have up for sale is this wonderful Antique Magic Lantern Slide Projector with Original Box. This item is a Museum Quality Piece that is Working Condition with (20) glass slides included. This is a great piece of photograph history is hard to find in this extremely great condition, and this antique slide projector still works. The projector comes in the original wooden box and still has the original instructions on the inside of the hinged door. According to the instructionof this projector it is named, "Exhibitor's Lantern" and this piece appears to be complete and all original. The projector measures 17 1/2" inches when closed and the body is 6" inches wide. When the projector is pulled open for use, it measures 28 1/2" inches long.All of the components of this slide projector are in superb condition. There are only 2 small issues with this projector, the leather handle is missing from the case and the light reflector shield has to be reattached with a solder gun tothe brass holder, but nothing major. This antique projector isconstructed ofbrass and tin andall of the metal has a brilliant finish with little or no corrosion. This projector comes with the original wood insert that holds (2) glass slides for viewing, which is hard to find at all anymore, especially in good shape. The projector has (2) lens without any cracks or apparent imperfections, the front lens measures 2 1/2" inches wide and is adjustable (telescopic) with a knob that expands/retracts the front area of the lensto 23/4" in length.The back lens is stationary and is right in front of the body, the lens measures 4" inches wide. The light and the light switch work and has an electrical cord without any frays or damage. I am not an expert on antique slide projectors and I have described this piece to the best of my ability. I did plug this projector in to make sure everything works, and when I put my hand in front of the projector, I could see the slide picture on my hand, but I had trouble finding the right adjustment or distance to view the glass slide on the wall.
I have taken many photos of this great piece and I hope I provided an ample description. Please view the picture closely and email me with any questions. Addition pictures are available upon request. Thank you and good luck.
