Quick Overview

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 Chrome Rapid rectilinear lens with the original set of waterhouse stops, and lens cap.


The camera has no name badge on it so we're unable to confirm the manufacturer, going by the literature that was in the case the camera is of French manufacture.


The woodwork of the camera is very good, there has been a repair on one side of the camera where a piece of wood has been spliced in, this has been done very well with hardwood and nicely finished, You can see this on one of the pictures. The bellows are original and light tight. There is a shutter on the camera which works, there is no release cable but the shutter can still be released using the lever on the side..There is some slight balsam discolouration on the edge of the lens elements however this is outside of the image cast by the internal built in stop so won't affect the final images.


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