Antique Set 25 French Tissue Stereoview Stereoscope Cards ~haunted Evil Skeleton For Sale

Antique Set 25 French Tissue Stereoview Stereoscope Cards ~haunted Evil Skeleton

THIS IS AN ANTIQUE (PRE-1900)SET OF 25 FRENCH TISSUE DIABLERIE STEREOVIEW CARDS, TO BE VIEWED THROUGH A STEREOSCOPE. THEY ARE CREEPY HAUNTED EVIL, TRANSLATEDINTO "DANCE WITH THE DEVIL". CARDS ARE IN GOOD CONDITION FOR THEIR AGE, HAVE APPROPRIATE AGE WEAR WITH SOME SCUFFS AND VERY MINOR WARP. NO MAJOR TEARS. I HAVE LISTED A FEW PHOTOS, COULD NOT SHOW WHOLE SET, AS THERE ARE 25 OF THEM. BUT THE SET TELLS A STORY- WITH MOST OF THEM EVIL SKELETON SCENES. A FEW SHOW THE BUILDINGS.

CARDS ARE ALL APPROXIMATELY 3.5" X 7".

YOU CAN VISIT THE WEBSITE OF- LONDON STEREOSCOPIC COMPANY- FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: LSC DIABLERIES.

THE SCENES DEPICTED IN THESE DIABLERIES ARE A COMBINATION OF A PAINTED OR A 2-D BACKGROUND WITH THREE-DIMENSIONAL ELEMENTS IN THE FOREGROUND, AND THEN PHOTOGRAPHED WITH A STEREO CAMERA. THE RESULTING STERO PRINTS WERE MADE ON THIN ALBUMEN PAPER, AND SEPIA COLORS WERE APPLIED,NOT TO THE FRONT SURFACE, AS IS THE CASE FOR MOST STEREOVIEW CARDS - BUT TO THE BACK OF THE PRINTS. THE EYES OF THE SKELETONS WERE THEN PRICKED OUT WITH A SHARP INSTRUMENT, AND SMALL PIECES OF RED GEL, OR BLOBS OF REDDENED VARNISH WERE APPLIED TO THE BACK OF THE PRICKED HOLES.(PHOTO NUMBER 5 SHOWS THE BACK OFA CARD) BEHIND THE PAIR OF PRINTS WAS ADDED A LAYER OF TISSUE PAPER. THE VIEWS ARE REVEALED TO CONTAIN SUBTLE MESSAGES - SATIRE AND COMMENT - RELATING TO THE POLITICAL AND SOCIAL EVENTS OF THIS PERIOD (1858) IN FRENCH HISTORY.

YOU CAN ALSO VISIT WIKIPEDIA, FOR FURTHER INFO.

IT IS RARE TO FIND A COMPLETE SET OF 25 OF THESE. THESE CARDS ARE VERY CREEPY AND HAUNTED EVIL.

LOW STARTING offer, AS THESE CARDS MUST GO.

(SOMEONE ELSE ON HAS 1 SINGLE FRENCH DIABLERIE CARD, LISTED RIGHT NOW FOR $225. SO HERE'S YOUR CHANCE TO GET THE COMPLETE SET OF 25).

SHIPPING IS FREE IN THE USA! THANK YOU!
