1800s William Hume Glass Slide Projector
This is an early glass slide projector that has just the right look. There are 2 wood frame slide carriers included. The bellows show a food deal of use and the wood is really nice. There is a large heavy glass lens inside. The lamp housing is signed as well as the wood frame. It may have used a candle or oil lamp as a light source. If it was a lamp it’s not included. It can be made to project slides but is perfect as a unique display... $600
