Huge unbranded petzval optical design lens engraved. This nice portrait petzval is in well preserved condition according its age. Unbranded but surely made in France at the end of 19th century.

Brass barrel wears a beautiful patina with tiny spots of varnis loss. There is an iris (so probably made in the 1890's) in working order and graduated from 1 to 6. Glasses are bright with very slight spots and are complete (cemented front achromay, 2 glasses separated by air on rear). Rack & pinion focusing system work as they should.

Lens hood and original mounting flange are included. Estimated maximum aperture: f3.8. Diametr at mounting thread: 96mm. External diamter of flange: 128mm. A huge and well built portrait petzval lens for large format photographers and wet plate enthusiasts.
