Celdé Stereoscope from France




The Celdé stereoscope was manufactured in France, but at this time no date of manufacture can be definitely established. The price on the box shows it costs 300 Francs. The viewer was made from rigid cardboard coated with a black paper covering. The inside of the stereoscope slid in and out to allow focusing. The glass  lenses were mounted into an early type of plastic surround, which, in turn, was glued into the body of the viewer. In construction the viewer was very similar to the French Bruguiere No 1 viewer

This type of viewer took rolls of stereo pictures on film which were fed through a slot at the rear of the stereoscope. The films were stored in cardboard rolls.

The company name and address appear on the bottom of the box, they are

C.L.D. 52 Rue Du Bourg, Lourdes
