DARLOT Paris brass petzval f4 240mm large format 4x5 5x7 portrait lens

An antique french lens engraved. Of course, today it could be an amazing tool for taking pictures.

As petzval optical design (cemented achromat on front, air separated glasses on rear), the 250mm focal length for f4 aperture is just perfect for portraiture in large format photography, with interesting bokeh (you can reverse size of rear glasses for increasing swirl effect). In used condition, brass barrel has varnish loss and some stains. There is not any dent. Rack & pinion focusing system works as it should.

Glasses are in good condition, of course with dust and slight marks due to age (Flint glass is "Darlot" and serial handwritten). Mounting flange is missing (75mm at thread). Diameter at mounting thread: 75mm. This lens covers easily 5x7in. A beautiful antique Darlot petzval lens, ready to take amazing pictures for wet plat enthusiasts and alternative process photographers.
