Lantern Slide - 'Delft Pagoda', Victoria & Albert Museum, London, 1909-1930

About this object

One of a set of ninety magic lantern slides containing images of artefacts, art works, decorative arts, interiors and furniture which appear to belong to various museum and gallery collections in the United Kingdom.

This slide depicts a Delft porcelain 'Flower Pyramid' manufactured by 'Greek A' factory, circa 1695. This piece is part of the collection at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.

The Francis Collection of pre-cinematic apparatus and ephemera was acquired by the Australian and Victorian Governments in 1975. David Francis was the curator of the National Film and Sound Archive of the British Film Institute as well as being a co-founder of the Museum of the Moving Image in London, which was operational between 1988 and 1999.
