Whereas, the Stereoscope was used to view two nearly identical photographs, or stereographs, as one three dimensional image. The stereograph would be placed in the card holder and adjusted to fit the user's vision until the two images overlap to mimic a three-dimensional effect. Item has a cut out of a clover leaf on the cardholder. This item comes with a removable viewing lens for the stereoscope. Underneath the body is an extendable handle, this accessory allows for the stereoscope to be either handheld or sit as a tabletop viewer.
