Order No. 222.LMC

Elegant cardboard replica of one of those magic lanterns with which images can be projected.

From the 17th century to the beginning of the age of cinema, the magic lantern has made a tremendous impression on viewers in fairground stalls, salons or children’s rooms. Because until the triumphant advance of the slide and film projector in the last century, the “magic lantern” was the only way to project moving images.

Nothing has changed in its construction principle since then, except that today the images are obtained photographically and the light comes from an electric light bulb.

Fully functional, die-cut cardboard model
noble gold print, 3 acrylic glass lenses
complete with electric lighting
Wilhelm Busch picture strip “The clever rat”.
Packaging: 305 x 215 x 30 mm
