Stollman (Israel) Collection of Stereographs
Series IV. Stereoviewers, 1860-1979 6.7 Linear Feet (7 boxes)
Stollman collected a variety of stereoviewers ranging from free-standing pedestal viewers to handheld viewers to compact collapsible viewers. Some of the viewers were made to accompany the stereoscopes produced by a specific publisher and are of more of a mass-produced nature, while others, especially the nineteenth-century models made by opticians and cabinet makers as parlor pieces, exhibit the qualities of small pieces of finished cabinetry.
