kodak leather case for unknown folding camera model

Postby cicciomunaron » Fri Jan 24, 2020 10:39 am

Hi all,
I'm a newbie on this forum, am a classic camera collector and I mainly focus on made-in-italy cameras, accessories and documentation. I have a special question regarding a kodak EKC leather case for a folding model I received from a british ebayer that sold me an italian camera. He also gave me that case as a gift, but now I'd like to match it with its proper camera.
Now the case has this (somehow misleading) impressed label:

1 pocket kodak series II
1 kodak series III
1 pocket kodak
eastman kodak co.
rochester, N.Y.
pat. mar 3, 1914 - made in u.s.a.

the size is as follows:
170 x 90 x 33 cm (about 6,7 x 3,5 x 1,3 inches)

I tend to exclude Pocket 1, 1A and all the A116 models (too big) but also all the vests (too small).
So what remains? One of the 120 models? Which one?
If someone can shed some light I'll be able to fill the case with the right camera.
Thank you!

I reply to myself because after investigating on collectiblend database I probably found all the three models. They are all 120's and their name are no more no less the same as those written on the case:
- No. 1 pocket kodak series II;
- No. 1 kodak series III;
- No. 1 pocket kodak.
They're all produced in 1926-31 but I need the proof that their size fits exactly on the case I have.
If you have more infos on those models I'll appreciate very much.
Thank you again!

Thanks a lot diser!
So it'll most probably fit that case. In the meantime I managed to get the same infos on the internet, won an auction on the bay and I'm currently waiting for a No. 1 pocket kodak to be delivered home from the UK. Will keep you update.
Thanks again!
See you soon
Roberto
