Kodak's Beau Brownie exists in two models: N°2 Beau Brownie for 120 film and the slightly larger No2A Beau Brownie (for 116 film). The two models appeared in October 1930 and disappeared in 1933; although, the green and rose models were withdrawn in 1931. Their front faces are made of two-tone enamel. The geometrical figures are typical Art Deco and credited to Walter Dorwin Teague. The possible colors are black/brown, rose/pink, blue/light blue, green/green blue, tan/light tan and all black. The metal body is covered with imitation leather. The only adjustments were I & B shutter speeds and three choices of aperture, given by sliders on the top edge. It has a 1/50 of a second shutter, red frame count window in the back, leather handle, film advance winder that pulled out to release the internal film mechanism, two ¼” 20 thread tripod sockets, and two brilliant viewfinders for portrait plus landscape.
