    This instrument, called "graphoscope", was marketed circa 1900 in France.
    The big lens was used to look at photos, often in the carte de visite format.
    The two small lenses are for the examination of stereoscopic prints.
    It is manufactured from fine wood and may be completely folded when unused.
