Beautiful and very well built technical camera from french maker Lorillon. Made in walnut with shiny brass mechanical parts.Bellows are tight and I can't see any pinhole. Ground glass is present and has some marking and slightly scratches. The lens is the high desirable Dallmeyer 3D petzval optical design, sought after for its unique rendering. In well preserved condition, barrel made in black aluminium, iris works as it should, glasses are bright. The soft focus system ("turn for soft focus") doesn't work and needs attention if you want to use. But the lens works perfectly without this soft focus capacity. The lens is mounted on a french Midelly roller blind shutter in working order.
This set is in collector condition and was displayed in showcase for years by previous owner. But a second life as shooting tool would be great. No plate hoder is included but I guess you'll make your own for wet plate collodion. A very beautiful camera with very good lens!
