By today's standards, these risque pin-up stereoview cards are pretty tame. Back in the early 1900s, these were part of a 3-D 'moving picture show' in a Mutoscope machine. Kind of the early peep show.
She's a nude beauty, covered in nothing but a black lace shawl. One view shows her seated on an opulently pillowed sofa, clutching the lace over her chest, looking very melodramatic. In the other view, she's reclining and admiring her image in a large hand mirror.
These cards measure 7 by 3 1/2 inches (standard size for stereopticon viewers). The sepia tone photos are mounted on heavy cardboard. These were done by hand...not commercially made. Both are in excellent vintage condition. What would those prim Victorian ladies have said about these?
