Quick Overview
Good but well used Lancaster Instantograph half plate camera complete with lens and plate holders.

Bellows appear to be in one piece and light tight, there is wear to the corners but I can't see any light leaks from within the camera. There's a bit of scrunching up of the bellows at the front but this is purely cosmetic.Brass work is complete but mostly discoloured from its original shiny look, it would clean up very nicely though with a little effort. The lens is nice and clean and clear, the iris works as it should. It is a little tight mounting on the camera however and it does not screw far into the mounting flange, enough to keep it in place though. Woodwork is in good shape, it has marks on the base and especially around the tripod socket from normal use. The name plates that should state Lancaster (front) and Instantograph (top) are both missing.
