Schaja Klappkamera. At least one of those models, probably earlier one, without owl logo.
Hard to tell with these photos. Does it look like this?
Also, please read this topic, those suggestions help to pin-point exact model.

You are correct again, I did not have a decent photo. No, this one is smaller than the one you had the link to, It
measures 4 3/4" x 6 3/8" x 2". The reel/button does not seem to actuate the unfolding mechanism so I have not unfolded it. From what I can gather Schaja was a local camera shop in Munich? I found it hard to find info on..............
