Rare Antique C.P. Goerz Tenax Folding Camera Berlin Germany pre-1926 NICE !!

Up for your consideration we are proud to offer this rare, antique Tenax folding camera, made by C.P. Goerz of Berlin, Germany, pre 1926.  After 1926, Tenax was continued to be made by Zeiss, after they absorbed Goerz.

  • Lens is Kalostigmat 1:6.8 f=13cm Serial # 441179
  • Lens is free of cracks and scratches, and most functions housed within camera when folded are in exceptionally clean condition, though metal sides have a bit of oxidation, not interfering with photos or working of camera
  • Leveler, viewer, remote shutter release, and shutter work, but we did not test actual shutter speeds
  • Bellows all look good, but camera will not open all the way to edge ~ AS ADVISED BY A CAMERA EXPERT TODAY:
    • THIS IS NOT A DEFECT ~ PHOTOGRAPHERS USING FOLDING CAMERAS WHERE SUBJECT WAS ALWAYS SAME DISTANCE AWAY INSTALLED THESE SCREWS ON THE RAILS, SO AS NOT TO HAVE TO ADJUST EACH TIME ~ THEY CAN BE EASILY REMOVED, SHOULD YOU CHOOSE, SO CAMERA CAN OPEN ALL THE WAY FORWARD ~ (see last photo)
  • Camera is a bit difficult to open when closed ~ the tiny latch must be pressed in with a fingernail just a tiny bit, as we did, or a small tool
  • Exterior leather shows wear on sides and edges, and brown TENAX handle has dislodged itself from one side, commensurate with age
  • Please look at all photos, as they are an integral part of description
  • Camera could use a cleaning ~ we NEVER clean our vintage equipment, as each owner has their own preferred method of doing so
  • Not much information is available on this camera, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask, and we will do our best to answer
  • As film is not readily available for this camera, we did NOT test it, and must therefore sell it AS-IS

We are certain that you camera experts will be able to transform this into a magnificent operating folding camera if you choose, or merely keep it as a piece of photography memorabilia or perhaps for movie props, and we are thrilled to offer this magnificent camera to market for your pleasure.
