A Very Fine 4x5 Watson Alpha Camera Outfit Brass & Mahogany Wooden
A Very Fine 4x5 Watson Alpha Camera Outfit. Offered for sale is an exceptionally fine 4x5 Watson Alpha mahogany & brass hand and stand camera outfit. The camera has a name plaque on the top which reads: Watson & Sons Manufactureres 313 High Holborn LONDON The camera is constructed entirely of dovetailed French polished mahogany with all lacquered brass fittings. The front of the camera pulls down and the lens panel pulls out on mahogany tracks. The lens panel on the Alpha is of a very unusual construction. The lens is inverted and on the inside of the camera. As it's a Rapid Rectilinear the lens can be used both ways round. The roller blind shutter is mounted on the front and in front of the lens. Although the shutter is by Thornton Pickard it was adapted by Watson's with a finger operated release mechanism to the side. The Shutter can be removed as it is held in place with 2 clips. The focussing guide at the front of the camera corresponds with the lens. The bellows are of dark maroon polished Russian leather with the early square corner. At the rear of the camera is the focal screen. This slides out and the plate holders slide in with a locking catch at the end to keep them in place once loaded.

The camera comes with a pair of brass bound double dark slides and a Watkins Bee exposure meeter in its original case. The leather case has a very elaborate printed label in the lid for Watson & Sons Condition: Cosmetically the camera is very good with only very minor wear and scuffs. Mechanically everything works just as it should. The shutter works on all speeds but has not been tested for accuracy. Optically the lenses are very good and clean with no delamination or damage Dimensions: Width Of Camera - 15cm Apsley Antiques Mailing List Please join our mailing list on the leftof the page.
