Pathescope Gem 9.5mm cine projector manufactured by Pathescope Ltd in England between 1948 and 1958.

9.5 mm film is an amateur film format introduced by Pathé in 1922. It was conceived initially as an inexpensive format to provide copies of commercially made films to home users, although a simple camera was released shortly afterwards.

The Gem was designed and manufactured by British Pathescope and not sold in France (the home of Pathe).
