An amazing Victorian stereo photo circa 1870, showing ladies in extravagant Napoleon III dresses and gentlemen having dinner together.
The scene is complete with chandeliers and Champagne cups!
The hand coloring is original to the piece and still incredibly vibrant.
A simple pair of glasses with one eye red and one eye green should be enough to see the scene in 3D.
The photo is very sharp and shows a wealth of details.
There are many people in the dining room and they seem to have a lot of fun. many men are standing in their 19th C Tuxedos and lifting their Champagne glasses for a toast.
There is not yet any electricity (!) and the chandeliers still have candles.
A servant on the left dressed in Louis XV costume and wearing a wig is waiting for orders, and bored with the job seems to be falling asleep.
Everybody else seems to be cheering and having a really good time.
A delightful antique piece which will bring a touch of fun to any collection!
