Beautiful french camera made by Etablissements L. Gaumont, Paris, mahogany wood, 13x18cm plate size, with classic large format french lens Boyer Saphir f4.5 210mm. In used condition, very well made and rigid, with 550mm extension. Mahogany wooden parts have some marking. Brass metal parts are complete.
Bellows are tight and I can't see any pinhole. These are scratches on groundglass.
Lensboard has been fixed and consolidated by black aluminium tape. The lens Boyer Saphir 4.5 210mm is in good condition, this is the late coated version, barrel made in alumunium, glasses are ok, iris works as it should. Ready to mount your wet plate holders for shooting great pictures.
This camera could be also a very good base for restoration.
