- A stereoscope presents a three-dimensional image by showing one view to the left eye and a slightly different one to the right eye. This example is based on the form developed by the British scientist, Charles Wheatstone. The “Mon. J. Duboscq / PH & F. PELLIN / Paris” inscription indicates a date between 1912 and 1927. The instrument is also marked “81”.
