This is a beautiful glass hand colored slide of a real photo of three Border Collies laying out in a field with hundreds of sheep. I can understand why they are resting that’s a lot of sheep to take care of. It measures 4 x 3 inches and is framed in a black paper tape along the edges. It is in wonderful condition for being over 100 years old with vivid unfaded colors. As you can see by the last photo, it is very dark until held up to light. I display mine in my kitchen window but they will fade unless it’s a window that doesn’t get much sun. I also have another slide listed. History: The magic lantern, also known by its Latin name lanterna magica, is an early type of image projector that used pictures—paintings, prints, or photographs—on transparent plates (usually made of glass), one or more lenses, and a light source. It was mostly developed in the 17th century and commonly used for entertainment purposes. It was increasingly used for education during the 19th century. Since the late 19th century, smaller versions were also mass-produced as toys. The magic lantern was in wide use from the 18th century until the mid-20th century when it was superseded by a compact version that could hold many 35 mm photographic slides: the slide projector.
