Small bottle of Kodak White Ink made by Kodak Ltd London.
A small bottle of 'Kodak White Ink' that "flows freely from an ordinary pen and when dry gives solid white permanent inscriptions on lantern slides, mounts, etc."
Bottle approx. 2.5 inches high, with a cork stopper.

A teak wooden Sandhill slide-frame. The end section slides out to allow easy entry/removal of contents.
The outer dimensions are 28 x 23 cm and the inside is approximately 25 x 21 cm.

Shutter mechanism for magic lantern or enlarger.
This early shutter is quite large. The body is circa 31,75 cm long by 15 cm tall so only few lanterns can handle it. The lever mechanism is rather simple; it contains two over each other sliding metal plates that move from a complete closed hole in the middle for complete darkness, to being opened to the position where the circle is completely open. In magic lanterns better results are obtained when the lever is moved slower than in the animation. Made of metal and wood with no makers name.
Metal shutter / dissolver.

Equipped with a brass clamping ring that can be attached to the front of the projection lens. The light is gradually shielded by pulling the handle. Obviously a second clamping ring had to be attached to the other end of the rod, so that a dissolve of the image from one lantern to that from the other could be made at a biunial.



Handy Slide Box
made by William Butcher & Sons Ltd.
For storing square magic lantern slides of 8.3 x 8.3 cm.



Snow effect maker.

 A projection device creating impression of falling snow or rain. The central square contains a blackened flexible material pierced with tiny holes. Both cranks move when you are moving one so the curtain rolls up or down depending on what crank you use and the direction you are turning them.

This popular superimposed snow effect can be combined with a lantern slide of a winter scene that can be placed in front of the curtain.
Cervus Dry Binding Set for Lantern Slides etc.
A device with which magic lantern slides, negatives, postcards etc. could be framed. The set consists of a pair of pliers and a number of strips for binding, and instructions, in German, attached to the inside of the lid.

Robert Smith's improved apparatus for Binding Lantern and like slides.
To be used with, for example, the Binding Strips from Primus or the Butterfly Brand.



Small cardboard box that contains 1000 plain spots for marking magic lantern slides to prevent showing the slides upside down or as a mirror image.

Gevacolor light box made by the Belgian manufacturer Gevaert. The box was intended for viewing the negatives of the 60mm films made by Gevaert, among others, but can of course also be used very well for viewing magic lantern slides.
Dimensions: wide 14 cm, deep 14 cm, high 11.5 cm.
