An antique french lens engraved. EIDOSCOPE 1:5 N°II HERMAGIS PARIS n°129xxx. A beautiful classic portrait lens and part of french photographic history. The Eidoscope by Hermagis Paris is a soft focus portrait tool for large format photographers. The soft focus effect plays on spherical aberration (not fully corrected), for a beautiful rendering wide open.
Once stopped dow, the soft focus effect decreases. In used condition, this lens has not been restored or polished. Brass barrel wears some marking due to age, and some varnish loss. The iris works as it should, the ring turns firmly.
The glasses are bright, with a small chip on the very edge on front and rear chromat (see attached pictures). Original brass mounting flange is included. This portrait lens covers 8x10in and 10x12in at portrait distance. Diameter at mounting thread: 98mm. External diameter of flange: 130mm.
A beautiful classic portrait lens in working order, ready to fit your lensboard and make amazing pictures for large format photographers and wet plate enthusiasts. Check my other antique lenses for sale.
