1920s Pathe Freres Paris projection lens

Got two such Pathe Freres Paris projection lenses (65mm + 85mm) through a friend,
guess they are from the 1920s..

Some shots with the 65mm mounted on my GH4 at evening light

I'm pretty impressed about that lens nearly 100 years old...

Full set is here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/kds315/albums/72157703676545345/with/45186790584/
I would have an exhibition called, “Dream Vision”!

Mood, mood, mood! Just being embedded in glorious gossamer silk and a magic spell!

How have you mounted them. You can dispense with an aperture but is there anything to thread on to?

I’d love to see your setup or do you have one that You have shared previously and adapts to just about anything?
