This very hard to find and in great condition collection features 132 stereoscopic cards of skin diseases. The stereo viewer creates a three dimensional effect. Each card is printed on very heavy card board stock and have a very strong colors that are sharp and not faded. The back of the card explains the type of condition and cure. The cures are quite primitive and more hazardous than the skin disease at times. I have shown just a small glimpse of the collection to give you an idea. The collection is complete and comes in the original stereo viewer and box (that has been reinforced over the years) . Each card measures: 5" x 7" and has normal wear to edges of cards--several have age old stains. Comes with slide id sheet.
Prosthetic hand and arm, circa 1930s. Could be operated via a cable running from its end near the wrist and attached to the arm of the prosthesis. The proximity and angle of the would in turn dictate the opening and closing of the prosthesis. Made of enameled wood, metal springs, aluminum and leather.
Piece in in nice old condition with worn paint and signs of use.
