Fresh out of an old Texas estate, this is a vintage Rolleicord "Art Deco" Camera, manufactured by Franke & Heidecke, produced between November, 1933 and March, 1936.

Condition as seen in the photos; I have not tried to clean it or test it. It comes directly to you *As Found*, with it's leather carrying case. The case itself has some obvious wear, but is still very functional.

Here are the details about this version of the Rolleicord from camerapedia.com:

Rolleicord I Model 1 (factory Model K3 - 510) was known colloquially as the 'Tapeten-Rolleicord' (wallpaper Rolleicord) in Germany.

The camera is nickel plated and decorated with a trompe-l'oeil grid on all sides bar the bottom. A depth of field table has been attached to the back. The camera was sold with depth-of-field tables in German, French (this unit) and English. In parallel with the decorated versions, a plain model was also produced, covered with standard black leatherette. Towards the end of the production run, a removable camera back was introduced,, whch then allowed for optional back replacements, such as a 35mm adapter (Rolleikin I) and a sheet film adapter.
