Vintage Cameras and Spring Mantle

Showcasing some thrifted vintage cameras and adding a bit of early spring colour mixed with the cameras on my hutch shelves.

These personal collectibles are mostly thrifted.

It is fun to pull out collections and group and regroup until a happy balance is found.

The movie camera is heavy, solid, beautiful and still has a bit of sound when the button to record is pushed. I know nothing about this camera, just that it is a collectible treasure.

The Argus has the manual and the holder for a flash. 
The Asahiflex was is in good working order perhaps 10 years ago but since I no longer use film I haven't recently tested it.

 A very small fold out camera with a very disintegrated cloth accordion, needs very careful handling just to keep it as it is. A sweet little treasure.

The two Agfa beauties are fairly good condition. My favourite is the larger with the little folding foot that holds the front in place.

The three sizes (below) together. I can only wonder who owned them and how they were used.

Lovely treasures.

DGS game me some pretty wax and ice decorations he made and a 'Family' mushroom because "I love green and family".

You just have to smile and share a little love.

Thanks for visiting.

  1. Those cameras are a real treasure! I remember my grandma's camera that had a flash, and the little light bulb would melt each time she took a flash photo. How easy it is now to use a digital camera and upload our photos from the camera card!

  2. good morning Joy ... you have some wonderful treasures. Your cameras are a real treasures. I never even look at them at sales because I know nothing about them, but you sure have a treasured collection. Love that you included the family treasures too.
