Accessories For The Stereoscope
A variety of accessory pieces were produced for stereoscopes and stereoviews, most are rarely found. Here are examples of some of them.
This mahogany view storage box will be found in two different sizes and was designed for early flat mount view storage. Depending on the size it will hold either 48 views or 60 views. I have only seen four of these and two of them were filled with views by James Hurst leading me to believe that it may have been something that he had made specifically for his own views.
These two view storage racks are made of mahogany and are highly detailed. There are many other similar designs.
This is a combination view storage rack and viewer storage unit made by Joseph L. Bates of Boston.
