Vintage Magic Lantern

A German childrens black metal magic lantern with an opening side door, removable spirit lamp with glass funnel and 12 magic lantern slides all housed in an original magic lantern wooden box. 
The box is covered in black paper. A colour printed paper label stuck onto the hinged lid reads 'LANTERNA MAGICA' and depicts a group of people enjoying a magic lantern show. A pink paper label of instructions is stuck to the inside of the lid (some discolouration). The label reads ‘Gegrundet 1866/ FABRIK-MARKE/ MADE IN GERMANY’. 
The interior of the box is divided into three compartments. Two of which are narrow and each holds six lantern slides standing on edge in slots. The central compartment houses the magic lantern, lens and viewing screen. 
The magic lantern consists of a rectangular metal box supported on 4 gold coloured metal clawed feet. The hinged door has a latch and allows access to the spirit lamp. In the centre of the door is a gold coloured embossed oval shaped logo incorporating a wheel flanked by wings. Underneath is written 'E.P.' and 'MADE IN GERMANY' in embossed letters. On top of the rectangular metal box is a pierced chimney in gold coloured metal. The back of the box is pierced with ventilation slots near the floor. 
The 12 rectangular glass lantern slides are all edged with paper.
