c.1900 SEROCO CAMERA CO. - 5X7 - RED BELLOWS - BRASS - EXCEPTIONALLY NICE - NR

Manufactured by the Seroco Camera Company - actually by Conley for Sears Roebuck & Co., which purchased Conley after the turn of the century. This is a typical “box” type, drop bed camera for 5x7 glass plates. Dimensions: closed - 8.5” x 8.5” x 3.75”, open with maximum extension - 18” - a BIG camera. Serial number 28927 - the removable back serial number matches the body. The outer leather shows typical wear from use, but is 100% complete. The original handle is intact. Burke & James 2-way spirit level is externally mounted on top of the camera body & still functions properly. The drop-bed over-extends and opens to reveal a gorgeous interior, with polished & lacquered mahogany and brilliant brass metalwork with nickel accents on the shutter. The double-extension red leather bellows are beautiful - supple & in wonderful condition with deep maroon color. I don’t know if they are light-tight, but I seriously doubt it after more than 100 years. The top bellows ring that attached to the lensboard is gone, but there is no damage to the bellows where it originally was. The nameplate on the front of the lensboard truck and the distance marker on the drop-bed is made from engraved ivoroid celluloid by the Whitehead & Hoag Co - Newark, N.J. (W&H offered discounted prices to customers who would allow them to place their name on the product). The viewfinder is remarkably clear with very little spotting or discoloration to the mirror. The UNICUM shutter is marked BAUSCH & LOMB OPT. CO. PAT. JAN 6, ’91 under the lens. 8 speeds from T, B to 1/100. Shutter is sluggish at all speeds. Aperture from f/4 to f/128 - pretty fast for this time period. Lens barrel is marked 5x7 Rapid Convertible and the glass is very clean with no signs of fungus or separation. All camera movements function flawlessly. The ground glass focusing screen is intact, with no cracks or edge chipping. The rear door is removable, held in place by 4 brass rotating tabs - it is not attached with a hinge to the camera body as is commonly found. Included are two (2) original 5x7 double plateholders in good condition - one holder is still loaded with two glass plates. One darkslide shows some damage but still works properly. The wooden holders - one dated 4-23-07 - add to the displayability of this camera. This SEROCO camera is in remarkably good condition with only minor cosmetic issues. A fastidious cleaning & dusting would elevate it to simply stunning. Add this to your 5x7 section & you will have a beautiful example of a c.1900 Drop-bed SEROCO camera that will enhance your entire collection. That said, it is over 100 years old & therefore is being sold AS-IS. The pictures in this sale are of the actual Seroco 5x7 Camera with Plateholders you will receive. It is being offered with . Shipping wt. approx. 6.5 lbs.

PLEASE look at the pictures carefully. I will try to answer your questions to the best of my ability. Please ask any questions BEFORE you offer. NO QUESTIONS DURING THE LAST 6 HOURS OF THE sale. Shipping Insurance is included. No response/buyers under 10 Positive response, please contact me prior to offerding. FINALLY - if you are AT ALL unsure about this item PLEASE DO NOT offer. Sold As-Is, No Returns. Thanks.

PayPal is preferred.

Most Domestic items will be shipped USPS Priority Mail. Some items (liquids, for example) will be shipped via UPS Ground. If you DESPERATELY need your treasure sooner than these methods, we'll have to look at what other arrangements can be made. This WILL increase your Shipping costs, perhaps substantially. NOTE: The term "Shipping" implies Shipping AND Handling costs. Packaging materials cost money, & I will pass the costs on to Buyers. Shipping Insurance is included. I guarantee your item will leave my hands properly packaged to insure Safe Delivery. I have never had a complaint concerning my packaging methods. Again, please contact me with any questions or concerns. INTERNATIONAL BUYERS - PLEASE NOTE: All International sales will be shipped USPS Express Mail International - includes insurance, tracking number & delivery confirmation. This can be expensive for some items. Certain restrictions apply - please contact me before offerding. If you win this sale, DO NOT make payment until I email you with the final total amount. Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to offerding/buying. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up - do not confuse them for additional shipping charges. We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts" - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.

All Sales Are Final. No Returns, No Refunds. Once an item leaves me, I never want to see it again. Before offerding, PLEASE study the description & photos. If you are still unsure, then by all means DO NOT offer. If you have questions or concerns, contact me & I'll get back to you ASAP.

Thanks for your interest in my items! I've been collecting - ALL KINDS OF THINGS - for many years, and now I want to start moving some of my nicer things along to other folks who will appreciate them & enjoy them as much as I have. I will try to list as often as I can, so keep checking back to see what else turns up. I look forward to dealing with you in an honest, respectful arrangement between Buyer & Seller. I have purchased many items on over the years, & have had friends list things for me to sell with no complaints of any kind. I have perfect response as a Buyer & intend to maintain that status as a Seller. If there is something that needs clarification, or you have questions about a particular item, please contact me. I will represent my items in a clear, easily understood manner. Most of these listings will be aimed at specific collectors of these items. You, the Buyer will often know MORE about an item than the General Public (& sometimes myself), so I will not bore you with inept descriptions. I'll include photos at all times - sometimes LOTS of photos - you know, photo/1000 words/etc. So thanks for looking & offer high & offer often! PLEASE ask questions or express concerns before posting any negative or neutral response. And FINALLY - please don't try to scam me or jerk me around; I have a very low tolerance for dishonest people. Sincerely, ajackblue

If there are any questions or concerns, please contact me through . I will respond to you ASAP.
