19thC Magic Lantern Slide – Aurora Borealis

Short Description

A quite striking wooden framed magic lantern slide depicting the Aurora Borealis with ship and adventurers fighting polar bears who appear rather hungry.

Manufactured by the McIntosh Battery & Optical Company Chicago circa 1890. The company was formed in 1879 and in the 1890’s changed its name to the McIntosh Electrical Co to concentrate in radio devices.

The wooden slide is 28cm by 10cm with the circular hand coloured slide 8 cm in diameter. The condition of the colouring and slide generally is excellent.
