An original rare Zeotrope or sometimes known as’Wheel of Life’ with a selection of paper & cardboard cards. Possibly German made around 1880. The instrument freely spins on the iron pivot although it does wobble a bit – maybe due to use. Wooden base has some old wood-worm to one side. Original black paint is scratched in places as you would expect for an item this old. Height 36cms; diameter of cylinder 30.4cms. This is a rarely found genuine example & not to be confused with reproduction or made up examples! I often use recycled materials & carefully extra pack the items to arrive safely.
