SALE 1935 German Box Camera / Balda Rollbox Camera / Vintage German Camera

This stunning and funky little box camera is an absolute favourite of mine. The face of the camera has a sunburst in the leather and the beautiful embossed camera label is stunning. The camera is made by Balda in 1935.

Balda was a German maker based in Dresden (Southeastern Germany, close to the Czech Republic). It was founded in 1908 and took the name Balda-Werk Max Baldeweg in 1913. The company made a quantity of medium-priced folders before World War II, and its camera production was quite comparable to Welta or Certo, though Baldas as a rule sold for lower prices than either of those cameras.

The Balda Rollbox (1935) took 6 x 9cm film. I'm not sure if this film is still available, or if the camera is in working order.

The camera has seen a lot of age and wear in the past 77 years, so the metal fixtures are rusting and the leather that surrounds the casing is frayed and in some places torn or damaged. This camera would make a gorgeous shelf decoration, photo prop, or addition to a vintage camera collector. You will notice the strap from the top of the camera is missing.

Please Note: Vintage items are vintage for a reason, they've seen a little bit of wear and tear in the last few decades and they've been well-loved along the way. Every piece has a unique story. Please understand that items will have minor imperfections, but any damage will always be mentioned in the description.
