Red velvet hand-held stereoscopic viewer

Item is a wood and metal hand-held stereoscope with a red velvet viewer. This object was used to view two nearly identical photographs, or stereographs, as one three dimensional image. The stereograph would be placed in the sliding card holder and adjusted to fit the user's vision until the two images overlap to mimic a three-dimensional effect.
