A somewhat peculiar stereoscope built by Carl Zeiss from Jena. I haven’t fount anything about this model in the catalogs of the company. The viewer most resembles a simple version of the well-known Zeiss Verant. It has the same robust features, but the lenses cannot be focused and the distance between the lenses is not adjustable. The Carl Zeiss Jena logo and the serial number 8750 are visible between the lenses. The optical quality of the lenses is high.
The fold-out metal rod is not a hand grip and is intended to support the viewer. The stereoscope is therefore a table stereoscope. It’s suitable for 9 x 18cm stereoviews and comes with an original wooden box with five glass stereoviews for testing purposes.
This viewer confuses. Which target group did Carl Zeiss Jena have in mind? The viewer lacks functionalities for an optimal viewing experience, like the focussing of the lenses, but it’s robust and comes in an exclusive wooden box.
