In 1884 W. C. Hughes was granted British patent number 13,372 of 9 October 1884 for a magic lantern slide carrier based on Beale's Choreutoscope. The idea was developed and a number of companies issued their own versions of the Choreutoscope slide including J. H. Steward. The glass picture slide in this example is fixed and retained in its holder by a hinged wood stopper.
A Choreutoscope slide was sold in Magic Lanterns, Optical Toys and Cameras, 23 November 2000, lot 116. The hand-painted slide with taped edges showed a dancing magician; the shutter construction and transport mechanism were the same.
