Homepage 'de Luikerwaal' Just a lot of 
marvellous magic lantern slides.
The magic lantern slides in this item belong nearly all to one of the two most occurring kinds: small sheets of glass mounted in a hard wooden frame, and small sheets of glass without a frame. Below from both types only the glasses with the images are shown.
The glasses in a wooden frame entirely look roughly like this:



Often the name of the manufacturer is pressed into the frame. Sometimes a label with the name of the manufacturer and/or the name of the series/slide is pasted on a long side.


Below they are provided with a brown edge with wood grain.
 
Other, usually cheaper slides, are not mounted in a frame but, often covered by a protecting glass and a paper mask, only provided with a edge of paper adhesive tape.
These slides occur mainly in two formats: c. 8.2 x 8.2 cm and 10 x 8.2 cm.



Sometimes they are provided with a label in the top corner with the name of the manufacturer, and sometimes also a label with the name of the series and/or the slide.

Below they are provided with a dark gray paper like border.
