The Ring is an amateur cinematographic projector for 35 mm wide tape, made in 1900–1919 in Germany (Bavaria).
The construction of the cinematograph constructed by the Lumière brothers in 1895 and the rapid development of film art at the beginning of the 20th century, influenced the growing number of film projectors. One of them was the German Projector Ring made for shows at home. Despite a very simple structure, using the mechanism of the Maltese cross, it guaranteed a good quality of film projection, mainly because it used the standard 35 mm tape used in regular cinemas.
The largest part of the projector was a cubic lantern, embossed from a metal sheet, holding a bulb in a standard holder. On the side, there was an embossed inscription with the name of the device — Ring. Driven by hand with a crank, its mechanism allowed the film to be moved in a step manner.
