This is a rare vintage Gitzo Tripod Accessory Case crafted of chestnut leather and canvas. Gitzo began manufacturing items in 1917 but this case was not manufactured until some time after WWII when the company began specializing in the manufacture of tripods and accessories.

This case has a leather cap, handle and strap. It is tapered in shape being 6" diameter at the cap at the mouth and 4.25" diameter on other end. The length when closed is around 31". The mouth opens to allow the tripod to be inserted from the top down. One the tripod is in place the mouth is closed and secured by a leather strap and brass buckle closure.

Condition:

The case is in good condition for its age.The original carrying strap and leather handle are in tact. the buckle and strap function properly. However, like all vintage products there are scuffs, scratches and flaws. There are also a few small pin mark style frays on the canvas.

About Gitzo

According to their website, Gitzo was founded in France in 1917 by Arséne Gitzhoven, who produced cameras, cable releases, shutters and filmpack frames for the photographic industry until 1942, when the World War led to the company being temporarily dismantled. Production started again in 1944 and tripods were introduced to Gitzo's product range in the 1950's. In 1960, Arséne Gitzhoven retired and his daughter, Yvonne Plieger, took over running the company with her husband, devoting themselves to the development of a wide range of top quality tripods and heads which were exported to more than 54 countries.

In 1992, Gitzo became part of the Vitec Group - a multinational holding company specialized in supporting professional photographers, broadcasters and filmmakers. Gitzo still strives to produce the best possible camera accessories and supports using the simplest, most straight forward and elegant solutions... however long and complex the path to get there. This spirit has helped Gitzo pioneer the most advanced and revolutionary technologies, while maintaining its enthusiasm, philosophy and traditions.
