Islolan Viewer from Germany




This rare example of an Islolan Stereomat viewer was manufactured in Germany in the mid 1950's. Unlike any other viewer it has three lenses, the middle one is to magnify the name of picture currently being viewed. The viewer itself is made from plastic, as are the slides.  When new the viewer cost 5 Deutschmark and the slides 90 Pfennig each. Each slide had six stereo pairs.

These viewers sell for extremely high prices on the rare occasions they become available. One (with 10 slides) sold in November 2006 for over £280.

In this picture you can see the effect of the centre lens magnifying the name of the current stereo pair.

The shot below is of the viewers only markings, located on the top of the slide slot.

The slides are plastic and each photograph measures 11mmx10mm. The slides enter the viewer from underneath and are moved through by turning the knob on the right of the viewer in a clockwise direction.
