Vintage and Original
Number 1505? Magic Lantern glass slide photo of a Javanese woman working on a Batik pattern. Photo was taken at the 1889 World’s Fair in Paris.
Slide is being sold as found. I have not tried to clean it…and it does need cleaning.
I see a lot of dust, some soiling spots and some fingerprints when the slide is held to the light at a certain angle.
I do not see any breaks or cracks in the glass.
There are two vertical marks in the upper right portion of the slide that may be scratches inside the glass. One of the marks is about 3/8″ long and the other is much shorter.
The slide is bound in original black paper edging and measures about 3.25″ x 4″.
