Thornton Pickard Imperial Triple Extension Field camera. Half Plate format (6 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches). Very well made in Mahogany with lacquered brass fittings.
The french polished Mahogany finish is lustrous and the brass is in good condition, with medium patination as you would expect. There are a couple of minor splits in the wood, nothing unusual or serious.
The knob for the rear standard extension is not original. All movements operate correctly, nothing is broken or damaged and the camera is in ready to use condition. The focus ground glass screen is in good sound original condition. There are two matching plate holders included. (if you found a roll film back or loaded it with cut sheet film, I'm pretty certain it would take good images). Overall a very good quality classic camera, the Best of British, well made and in really good condition for 110+ years old.
