Make sure to check out all of my sales after you've looked at this one. I've got another great line-up of musical, mechanical and technical collectibles this week, and I'm sure you'll find at least one item that interests you.Here's a beautiful little Le Merveilleux 1/4 plate camera manufactured by J. Lancaster ca. 1890. Condition is excellent throughout, as you can see in the photographs. Wood is clean and undamaged, with its original finish still intact. Original hardware and fittings throughout. Bellows appear to be light tight (though I have never tested the camera with film). Ground glass is in excellent condition, with no damage. Double-slide plate holder stays snugly in place when fitted on the back. Lens is neither cloudy nor damaged and is original to the camera. Folds up correctly and fairly quickly. The celluloid tag on top was missing when I got the camera, so I made a replica, which is reasonably convincing (see photo). J. Lancaster tag on lens board is original. A very cool, very collectible Victorian era folding camera that comes with its original leather lens cover and its original brass tripod mount.Shipping weight will be about 5 lb.That's about it. I will pack it carefully and properly. sale participants with no prior response history should also contact me before placing a offer. Buyer prepays and includes shipping. Paypal okay.
