Quick Overview

Unknown maker - Lovely half plate Tailboard camera with Petzval lens


This camera is in fantastic condition, it comes with 2 plate holders, one one of the dark slides there is a crack but the other side is ok. The Lens is a lovely Burr Petzval and is perfectly matched to the camera. The glass is in great condition and it's ready to shoot. There's a waterhouse stop slot on the lens however there;'s no stops included. The original lens cap is however included.


The name plate is missing from the camera but it's almost identical to a Watson camera that we had in stock previously, there's several makers of this style of camera, all of which are very well known. The bellows are immaculate and my guess would be that these have probably been replaced. The wood is in very good condition apart from a split on the baseboard (this is a very common issue on mahogany cameras) it doesn't affect the operation or the stability of the camera. The Tripod socket is missing from the camera, we're having a new one made which will be fitted prior to dispatch.
