1929 wooden portrait camera - Zeiss lens

Postby Luckyguy » Fri Sep 07, 2018 12:12 pm

Greetings. I have an old wooden portrait camera with Carl Zeiss Jena lens. When I first inherited the camera (about 40 years ago) I looked up the serial number on the lens and if I remember correctly hey were from 1929. The camera belonged to my wife's great aunt.
I have attached photos of the lens and the camera.
The lens have the following information on them:
#1192611 1 : 3.5 cm Tessar Compur

#918904 59cm Protarlense

1:9 f 7.5 cm Greerz- Dagor

The two bigger lens have velvet lined leather cases. The Greerz-Dagor is mounted on a smaller lens board that attaches to a wooden frame that allow for tils and swings (?)
I'm new at this so be a little patient and I'll get it right eventually.. Do I need submit better photos? Thanks

FYI, should be Goerz-Dagor, not Greerz.
