Here is a vintage Rochester Optical Co. It is the 4x5 size version. It has its oirignal red bellows. It has a very early brass lens with the wheelhouse diaphragm which I think they only used for the first year of the cameras production in 1895. The glass has a little seperation around the edge.
The camera is made of quality mahogany wood. The ground glass is intact. It is missing the viewfinder on the front bed and the strap is broken. Please look at the pictures to see what the camera needs as it most likely has other issues as well. Check out my other auctions for many other antique cameras.
