The company Sigurd - Kassel was a distributor of technical equipment, e.g. for plate cameras of various manufacturers, like Welta and Zeh. The plate camera that is offered here is one of the high-quality cameras from the Sigurd assortment with a fast lens, a Compur shutter, a double pull-out and double adjustable lens standard.
The camera is in good condition and only shows little signs of age/wear (see photos); the technical condition is also good, the lens is clear and without scratches, the shutter triggers at all speeds, but was only acoustically tested. The bellows is intact, also the focusing screen and the viewfinder. All settings work smoothly.
