Part of Lantern Slide Collection
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.
