Thornton Pickard Shutter & Antique Plate Camera Lens Board & 6 Brass Mounts:
THORNTON PICKARD SHUTTER & OTHER ANTIQUE PLATE CAMERA LENS BOARD & 6 BRASS MOUNTS for all plate cameras i.e. Sanderson, Watson, Ross, Lancaster, Houghton etc.
Please find 6 antique Victorian plate camera lens mounts, 1 mounted on a mahogany board (board measures 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"). All these mounts have been individually photographed as well as in the group and have labels by each one showing its measurements in imperial and metric.4 of the mounts are brass and 2 are gun metal painted black. All these mounts are in good working condition and are probably at least 120 years old.
The Thornton Pickard shutter is in very good condition. It appears from its patina, not to have done a lot of work in its life. It does cock and fire but does need some attention to the blind shutter inside. As the unit is screwed and sealed I have not opened it for further investigation.
All these items are in good useable condition.There are 8 photographs forming part of my description. Any questions, please ask.
