Contessa Folding métallique de poche

If so proudly, Contessa  announces that its folding bed cameras is made of metal, this is because at that time, a large number of similar devices are still made of wood. Here,the bed and the body are made of metal, possibly aluminum, which allows to combine lightness with strength.

We do not fail to notice the unusual arch that replaces the traditional U on which is fixed the lens / shutter block on top of which is a unique viewfinder.

This unit was built before the 1919 merger with the company Nettel.
