Plavic Série B

Like many manufacturers of plates and films, Plavic embarked on the marketing of cameras, more or less renamed.
This small 6 x 9 folding also exists as tan version, a little bit more luxurious.
It accepts the films 120, but Plavic recommends its film No. 19, who gave only 6 views.
The casing is made of cast aluminum, while most of the parts are deep drawn. The shutter keeps its original name, while on other Plavic cameras, it is renamed Plavico.
The Anastigmat lens is named Plavic (No. 13216) but the real maker is not known.
Two Congress standard threaded sockets allows for the use of tripod. Inside there is a serial number: 4096.
In conclusion, this small unpretentious folding camera holds an honorable place in the production of this period.
