Quick Overview
This is a very well made mahogany and brass half plate camera. There's no manufacturer on there but judging by the quality of the workmanship and the grade of wood it's clearly a very nice example. There is one plate holder included, as well as the lens which is a rapid rectilinear with slot for waterhouse stops (none included). The lens looks clean and clear, there's maybe a tiny amount of separation around the edge of the front element but this really is a tiny amount (and this might actually just be dirt). The lens is made in Paris, I can't read the name on it however. Bellows have some wear but are otherwise in good shape.
