Offered, is this UNIQUE and unusual PURMA 'Plus' Camera. This all-metal model was manufactured from 1951, the previous model being crafted from Bakelite. The one on offer was constructed from cast aluminium, boasting the unique and novel 3-speed metal sliding-blind shutter, which gave its speeds by the way it was held - the fastest being 1/500th sec - amazing in its day! It comes in good/used condition, with mild signs of age/use. The shutter works and the f6.3 55mm Purma lens is clear. The camera used 127 size film, giving 4cm x 3cm exposures. Also included is the original leather ever-ready case, signed 'Purma' on the front and in good condition. Seventy years of age this year and still unique.
The camera measures 13cm x 9cm x 6cm (cased), and weighs 865 grams before packing.
It will be sent by Royal Mail 'Tracked & Signed' postage, including insurance and may also be liable to customs check with delay. Although the camera is classed as 'working', if the film is now unobtainable then results cannot be guaranteed and it should be seen as a collectible display item.
