thecivilwarparlor: Stereoscope Like this one, and stereoviews provided the public with captivating three-dimensional views of the Civil War to experience at home. Stereoviews were produced using cameras with two lenses, through which the photographer took two pictures. When viewed side-by-side on a stereoscope, these pictures were perceived as one three-dimensional image. Stereoscopes came in a variety of styles and were handsomely designed to blend in with Victorian parlor decor. Some were handheld devices, some were freestanding, others were housed in attractive tabletop cabinets.

ganymedesrocks: Attributed to Russian Fabergé workmaster Antti Nevalainen A Silver Objects workmaster with marks A N and AN The 88 kokoshnik hallmark dates this as 1899-1908 A.Nevalainen, Finnish, Active from 1885-1917 Approx. Measures 3" H, 2" W. Approx. Weight: 173.6 grams. Courtesy of Kodner @ganymedesrocks, being involved in the arts and its trade, we always like to remind that when our posts intro suggests an object to be attributed is also a caution to remind of the importance to remain beware of copies. The great success of Fabergé meant that works were copied from very early on. The prevalence of fakes makes it important to see as many pieces as possible offered by reputable auction houses, reputable dealers and in museum collections. In particular, examine the quality of enamelling, the crispness of chasing and the overall design of works. Works that imitate Fabergé are often over-decorated with imperial symbols, such as the double-headed eagle. Even the age of a piece can be deceptive, because some turn-of-the-century continental objects have been retouched with Russian Fabergé marks to enhance value. The marks on a piece should be the last thing to examine, because it is suspicious when they have been heavily struck.
