This is a vintage Sawyer's View Master, Standard Projector model. Make of brown plastic, it is nicely stylized for the time period. Made in the 1950s or early 1960s, this is the standard version of the View Master projector. The original paper instructions is included. The projector works, but the lens needs to be glued, it is loose, and I was able to see a photo after much finagling (technical term). The bulb works and runs extremely hot as was common back then. I am selling as a display piece only as I don't like how hot it ran. Looks pretty cool as a display piece.
In addition to the View Master projector also included are 40 Photo Reels, most with original sleeves. Sample subject matter includes:

The View Master and the slides are in good vintage condition. The reels are so enjoyable to view, they appear 3-D, certainly a wonderful invention for its time.
