More about this item

This listing consist of 2 Vintage Sawyer View Masters made of Bakelite and believed to be from the late 40's to early 50's. Also included are 29 travel reels or disks (listed below) of which most were copyrighted in the late 40's. And to complete this set is the original storage case, also made of bakelite, which holds both of the viewmasters and the reels. Both view masters are in working condition but do show signs of use (scratching). One has a tendency to stick when the arm is pushed down but is easily raised by hand. The other has a broken area up near the top right corner on the back side(see photo). A couple of the reels show some slight warping but not enough to affect the usefulness. The picture quality of all the reels seems to be very good. The case, an off white top and a maroon/brown colored bottom, is marked on the top View-Master and on the bottom Sawyers, Inc. It does have a chip missing from one of the bottom edge corners of the top of the box. The reels included are: 16 - Bryce Canyon Nat'l Park I - Utah - Copyrighted 1948 17 - Bryce Canyon Nat'l Park II - Utah - Copyrighted 1948 26 - Grand Canyon Nat'l Park - South Rim I - Arizona - Copyrighted 1948 27 - Grand Canyon Nat'l Park - South Rim II - Arizona - Copyrighted 1948 30 - Grand Canyon Nat'l Park - Bright Angel Trail - Arizona - Copyrighted 1948 31 - Grand Canyon Nat'l Park - Kaibab Trail - Arizona - Copyrighted 1948 32 - Grand Canyon Nat'l Park - Havasupailand - Arizona - Copyrighted 1948 36 - Grand Canyon Nat'l Park - North Rim - Arizona 51 - Garden of the Gods - Colorado - Copyrighted 1949 81 - Niagara Falls - New York - Copyrighted 1946 111 - Redwood Highway - California 128 - Yellowstone Nat'l Park - Old Faithful Area - Wyoming - Copyrighted 1948 142 - Zion Nat'l Park II - Utah - Copyrighted 1948 227 - Mesa Verde Nat'l Park II - Colorado - Copyrighted 1949 234 - Cave of the Winds - Colorado - Copyrighted 1947 238 - Royal Gorge - Colorado - Copyrighted 1947 245 - Pike's Peak - Colorado - Copyrighted 1949 251 - Carlsbad Caverns Nat'l Park - New Mexico 901 - Wild Animals in Natural Habitats - Africa - Copyrighted 1948 121-A - Mormon Temple Tabernacle Grounds - Salt Lake City Utah - Copyrighted 1949 121-B - Salt Lake City I - Utah - Copyrighted 1949 121-C - Salt Lake City II - Utah - Copyrighted 1956 420-A - Your United Nations I - New York - Copyrighted 1955 420-B - Your United Nations II - New York - Copyrighted 1955 420-C - Your United Nations III - New York - Copyrighted 1955 SP-241 - Cheyenne Canyons and Seven Falls - Colorado - Copyrighted 1949 SP-243 - Broadmoor Cheyenne Mountain - Colorado - Copyrighted 1949 SP-9034 - Sea Lion Caves - Florence - Oregon - Copyrighted 1948 SP-9045 - Oak Creek Canyon - Arizona - Copyrighted 1949 Thank you for shopping.
