  1. Beautiful 10 x 12 Inch Camera outfit in original case

    Beautiful 10 x 12 Inch Camera outfit in original case

    £849.00

    Out of stock

    This fantastic outfit is fully original and complete, it is being sold exactly as we found it. It comes complete in the original case, along with 3 darkslides, a Smedley & Co. Rapid rectilinear lens with built in Iris, and lens hood.

    The camera has no name badge on it so we're unable to confirm the manufacturer, it is very well made though. The case is complete and in one piece but is starting to show its age a bit (as expected!).

    The woodwork of the camera is very good, there's a crack on the base (as is often the way on these cameras) in line with the tripod bush (you can see this clearer in one of the photos), there's also a small chip of wood missing on the base.The maroon leather bellows are light tight and in good condition.

    The lens is in good condition with the iris working as it should, there's some corrosion on the lens hood which could be easily cleaned off. We have decided to leave the camera in fully original condition.

    It's very rare to find such a complete and original 10x12" camera kit

    This is a Butcher’s Popular Pressman Box Camera in good condition for age, bellows, lens, ground glass screen and shutter all appear to be in excellent condition, shutter is working as it should (times not tested though but seems pretty quick).

    Half plate camera - Maker unknown

    £189.00

    Out of stock

    Lovely wooden half plate camera complete with one darkslide and Thornton Pickard shutter.

    No lens is included

    Camera is in very good condition, nice wood used throughout. Some tarnishing to brass work which is to be expected for a camera this age, strap is missing, ground glass is intact and has various plate sizes drawn on it.Bellows are immaculate. Shutter appears to be working but is missing its cable release The tripod ring is mixing its fittings on the bottom so can be pulled off the camera, our guess is that someone has modified it in the past so that it can sit on a flat surface.
