Vintage camera and photographic memorabilia collection (50 items)

Vintage camera and photographic memorabilia collection (50 items)

As I have recentlyretired, I am sadly having to sell my collection of vintage cameras and photographic memorabilia I have built up over 45 years of being a professional photographer.

A gallery of individual photos of each item can be seen on Picasa. Please cut and paste the following link into your web browser: /cn6njys

All the items are sold on the condition that they are very old cameras of historical interest, and as such may have marks, scratches, bits missing or broken. However several items are very nicely looked after and could just do with a good clean. If you are prepared to spend a little time on them and doing the odd repair, they offer a fascinating record of early film photography. My favourites are the Thornton-Pickard Puck box camera, the Klimex Lukos III quarter plate with 12 darkslides and some of the early Brownies.

Because they make up two heavy boxes I cannot send them by Royal Mail as I usually do, so would either ask you to collect them here in Bristol, or arrange your own courier. I am also not prepared to sell individual items as they are all sold as a ‘job lot’.

Thank you for your interest and good luck with the bidding. If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
