Purma RARE 1937 PURMA 'Special' Boxed Bakelite Camera. Plus Instruction Booklet.

Description
Purma RARE 1937 PURMA 'Special' Boxed Bakelite Camera. Plus Instruction Booklet.
Bakelite Camera - Very Good (used & in working state with minor signs of use)

The Purma is unique in a number of ways. It has a focal plane shutter - all metal. The shutter is curved, to allow for lens distortion. The shutter has three speeds, all automatically chosen on a gravity-controlled system which changes when the camera is held in various positions. All this in 1937!
The one on offer comes in excellent condition and seems little-used, with a 'new-look' to the Bakelite finish. The original presentation box is included, along with an Instruction Booklet and papers.
Rare to see this complete and this condition for an over 80-years-of-age camera.
A collectors gem!
