Neue Photographische Gesellschaft (NPG) Lithographed Tin Advertising Stereo Viewers

Stereo viewer collector Keita Wangari shared her collection of Neue Photographische Gesellschaft (NPG) lithographed tin advertising stereo viewers online hoping to learn more from anyone that have or collect these. "These metal viewers are all from about 1900-1910," wrote Wangari, "which I believe is around the same time offset lithography made tin advertising signs all the rage. There are German and U.S. patents. The "Imperial" viewers (U.S. and German versions) are easiest to find."

Metal stereo viewers

"I have 19 unique designs in this style with 14 companies and five countries represented. What's fun to find: different countries, company logos, people images, bright colors, unscratched paint, intact gold accents and adjustable cardholders."

Metal stereo viewers

"Most have the same "flower template" with a row of flowers under the lenses and curvy, decorative brackets around the promotional text at the bottom. Red coloring (last pic) is less common."

Metal stereo viewers

"But these 4 break away completely from the standard "flower" design! Something else to note in the first 3 - the two side slits."

Mini stereo views

"As for the miniature stereoviews, many are branded with company name on front accompanied by generic imagery (1st pic), one of my favorites is the actor/actress series (2nd pic), another favorite is U.S. landmarks (3rd pic), and I only have one set where the images are actually of the advertised company (4th pic)."

See more of Wangari's collection on the National Stereoscopic Association Facebook page.
