Wow, I never imagined a world where this delicate and rare candle transparency would have sold for $450! I love the photos this fine seller included, as I’ve always had difficulty imagining how this was supposed to be used. The one in my collection appears on page 44. It is in near-mint condition. I’d be thrilled to sell it for $375 plus shipping. Any takers?
The seller shows this great item next to my second edition and cites the value from that book. A fully revised and greatly expanded third edition has been available since June. This item is now shown on page 39 with a sustainable guide value of $200.
This nicely designed little gem was manufactured by Gibson in the 1930s. I'm glad the seller has listed so many good photos that give you an idea of how this transparency was meant to be used. These items are hard to find as Gibson issued this for a single season. Guide value is $65.
