The Lampascope Boule is a circular magic lantern projector with a hole at the base. This consumer lantern was meant to be placed on top of an oil lamp for home use. Lampascope projectors were elaborately painted with bright colours. This lantern is very faded but has remnant of red on the lens, and blue on the chimney.
Lantern with a black lacquered lantern body, a brass adjustable thread objective lens and an extendable chimney. This type of magic lantern would be used for presentations in large halls, and for educational uses in schools.
The manufacturer is most likely Laterne Universelle Clement et Gilmer (C&G), a French company established in the late 1800s in Paris. They produced lanterns with similar ornamental cutouts, and their lantern models had chimneys with adjustable heights.
A hand-cranked 35 mm and small glass slide projector. This cinematograph was made after 1908 by the limited company Société Anonyme des Etablissements Demaria - Lapierre, when the two Lapierre brothers were obliged to amalgamate with the photographic manufacturer Jules Demaria. Cinematographs always had the ability to show loops, film strips from which the begin and end were glued together. For this purpose the upper reel was mounted above the apparatus on an extending bar. Longer films could also be showed but since there was not take-up reel the film would fall onto the floor or in a bag. The intermittent film transport was brought about by a rotating buckled rod that repeatedly struck the film down.
