This lovely “Sanderson” camera, produced by “Houghton-Butcher Ltd.” with its’ case, is in “as found” condition and has not been restored or repaired. There are no splits to the black leather tapered bellows and they have retained a good colour, however, there is some fading the corners and creases. The camera retracts and extends smoothly. The nickel plated has retained much of its’ nickel finish.The camera is fitted with a “Compur” shutter, this appears to work, the lens is a “Carl Zeiss Jena, Tessar 1:4.5 “.The mahogany body is leather covered, and I can’t find any major splits or tears to this, just the usual scuffs, marks and scratches you would expect from a well used item of this age.The wood has retained much of its’ ebonised finish. The catches to the top work well. The back of the camera opens out fine and the leather sides are intact. The camera has its original case, this is embossed with “Ensign, Made in England”
