Carried to Heaven, 1860s Stereoview [Blog Exclusive ]

Rare 1860s stereoview showing angels carrying the body/soul of a deceased woman to heaven. This is a delicate tissue stereoview; the back layer of paper is hand-colored, so when probably viewed with a light source behind the image, it’s not only in 3D, but also in color.
