Vintage Spartus Full-Vue Synchronized Twin Lens Reflex Film Box Camera Antique!
I believe this was my parents camera when first married. Based on internet research listed below, it appears to be Circa 1940s, but can't be sure. This camera has been in a single family over its lifetime! The camera would be great for a collector, photographer, or just to display in your home or office!
The Spartus Full-Vue Reflex Camera was manufactured by the Spartus Camera Corporation in circa 1940. Designed as a simple to operate, twin-lens reflex providing the exact sized image on the ground glass viewer. The camera took twelve full size 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inch exposures on No. 120 or B2 roll film. It was fitted with a fixed focus lens for quick easy snap shots and simple time and instantaneous shutter. In 1949 it was improved with a synchronized flash (not included in this listing).
Approx. Dimensions: 4-7/8" T (with viewfinder closed) x 7" T (with viewfinder open) x 3-1/2" W x 4-1/2" D
