Thornton Pickard - Junior Special Ruby Reflex, Quarter Plate SLR
|Availability:||In stock (1)|
The Thornton Pickard Junior Special Reflex camera is a folding SLR for 3¼ × 4¼" plates or rollfilm backs. Manufactured by Thornton Pickard in the early 1920s, this particular camera is in surprisingly good mechanical condition with a remarkably clear lens, working shutter mechanism, and a fully functioning bellows focus system - viewable via the top-down hood viewfinder.
While the exposure setting dial and curtain could do with some TLC, there is every chance it could have a new lease of life in the right pair of hands. Failing that, it is a wonderful collectors piece and in need of a good home...
