Description

This vintage camera was made by L. Gaumont & Cie. around 1910-1920. It has the serial number 7113. It is sold as found, and is in need of some restoration. It is not in working order, and we believe that some parts may be missing. The camera has a brass front and back, which was once finished in black. It unfolds and retains a wooden and plastic back which slides out so the metal plates can be inserted. The wood is blind-stamped 'Ste des Etablissts Paris Gaumont'. The camera retains six metal plates in a case. The plates are stamped 'Elge Brevete SGDG'.
