Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

This folding camera with plate is with simple pulling and vertical off-centering. The focusing is made by thumb screw. The camera is equipped with a spirit level, located close to the finder at reflectors. The body of the camera is made of wood and the flap is metal. The unit is covered with imitation leather. There are two tripod socket. The metal parts are nickelled. It has a frosted framework of focusing with cap.
A small round plate is riveted on body side. It is the only mark of identification. The shutter is German (Vario by Gauthier), makes the exposure into 1 and 2 times and the snapshot to the 1/25, 1/50 and 1/100 of second. The lens Rectiligne Aplanat is of Buckler mark and is probably French because of addition of “Sté. A” for Limited company in french.
