Exceptional Tripod For Daguerreotype Camera --1840s--itself A Work Of Art For Sale

Exceptional Tripod For Daguerreotype Camera --1840s--itself A Work Of Art

THIS ELEGANT TRIPOD is fabricated out of mahogany like a piece of fine furniture and with the graceful lines of a piece of architectural sculpture. Tripods designed for daguerreotype cameras may be even rarer than the cameras for which they were created. The legs here are of fixed height, but the camera platform can be adjusted for height via the center-post, which was an innovation. A slotted track on the folding platform extension would allow the lens to be adjusted forward and back by almost twelve inches for focusing purposes. There was no provision to pan, rotate or tilt the camera.

Tripods were required to prevent camera movement because all daguerreian exposures were measured in seconds or minutes, not fractions of a second like digital pictures of today. Without the tripod all images madeduring the daguerreian erawould have been blurred. For an illustration of a daguerreotype camera on a related tripod go to this link: height from floor to platform = 49 inches; minimum = 34 inches

Camera platform folded on itself: 12 x 20 1/4 inches

Camera platform open: 12 x 39 3/8 inches

Distance between legs: 16 1/2 inches
