Lentograph List Page 1


All the information I've found about the lentographs of Victor Anderson 3D Studios.


I have listed these in numerical order, where known.

Examples without a known Plate No. are on the NEXT PAGE.

I don't have any information regarding dates or numbers produced,
if there were multiple reprints or how long they were commercially available.

Any indications of rarity are from my own experience
and are not necessarily indications of value. I have however added some recent ebay auction results as a rough guide to the current market.


Plate # 101 FOREST FANTASY

Forest Fantasy

12 x 16" Possibly "landscape" series (see #119, #120). Less common example.

Reverse reads Lentograph* by Victor Anderson 3D Studios Inc,
Mamaroneck, NY - Patent Pending - *T.M. Reg. application pending
I believe this is the earliest address and also an early example, judging by the lack of patents or trademarks. No title on this example, but on another one it reads

Last Supper


16 x 12 inches, first in 'religious' series, (see also #115, #116, #125, #U3, #U6, #U9)
Common example presumably because of its subject. Largest series overall.

Reverse reads Lentograph by Victor Anderson 3D studios inc. Port Chester NY. Pat no. 3,506,296
Plate #501 Christ and the Centurian


I think the high plate number perhaps indicates a later edition - I've occasionally come across the same image allegedly with the different numbers #112 and #212. At first I thought this was just a misprint, but now I'm not so sure. UPDATE! Recently I did see a plate #111 which is the same as #211. I have yet to find a plate #112 with a different image than the known #212 though. Also, if higher numbers mean later editions (which I now think is true), then surely there should be more of them out there, but this does not seem to be the case. [this is the first #5.. I have found in 2 years.] Also I had presumed that this address was earlier than #130, but why would a later series have an earlier address? The mystery continues...
