It has been completely restored both inside and out to original manufacture specifications. All parts are original and complete with makers marks and have been fully polished and painted as pictured.
History Of The Mutoscope
The Mutoscope works on the same principle as the flip book. The individual image frames are conventional black-and-white, silver-based photographic prints on tough, flexible opaque cards. Rather than being bound into a booklet, the cards are attached to a circular core, rather like a huge Rolodex. A reel typically holds about 850 cards, giving a viewing time of about a minute. The reel with cards attached has a total diameter of about 10 inches (25 cm); the individual cards have dimensions of about 2 3⁄4 in × 1 7⁄8 in (7.0 cm × 4.8 cm).
Mutoscopes are coin-operated. The patron views the cards through a single lens enclosed by a hood, similar to the viewing hood of a stereoscope. The cards are generally lit electrically, but the reel is driven by means of a geared-down hand crank. Each machine holds only a single reel and is dedicated to the presentation of a single short subject, described by a poster affixed to the machine.
