Vintage from the 1970s

Vintage, mid-century, "Diaporex" slide viewer, manufactured by Lestrade, France circa 1960's- 1970's.

Use for viewing 24x36 mm color and black & white slides, with an internal light and a polished optical lens. Made of bakelite and plastic with a pale, powder blue body, black trim and the mark, in sunflower-yellow letters on the front.

The futuristic streamlined, design is shaped like a television set from the seventies, Not only useful, this retro piece is both nostalgic and collectible.

There is no screw at the back. It opens easily to insert batteries that power the light and highlight slides. On the inside of piece with the optical lens, on the bottom left, it clearly reads "Marque de Moubles Deposes", indicating the Lestrade trademark and "Made in France" on the bottom right.

The viewer has been tested and is fully functional (see photos) with two (2), 1.5 volt type batteries (LR 14).

Comes with its original box, clearly marked "Diaporex Production des Stereoscopes Lestrade." Box is intact, but missing two cardboard folds at the top.
