Such a unique camera! The Clix-O-Flex was a novelty camera made by Metropolitan Industries of Chicago in the 1940s. It's a bit hard to find these days, though well worth the search. It took 127 film and the vertically oriented body measures approximately 5"h by 2 5/8"w by 2 3/4"d.

The black body is made of Bakelite and features a diamond pattern around the lens and tight horizontal grooves on the sides. And a really interesting characteristic of this camera is the dual-sided hood that covers the viewfinder -- the two chrome panels fold in on one another.

The camera has a top viewfinder, so it might be a good candidate for TtV photography. If you're not familiar with TTV, the Flickr group has some amazing examples and tips to help you get started:

The camera is in good aesthetic condition, with no chips or cracks to the Bakelite. Some blemishes on the chrome accents, but this is still a nice vintage camera.

Please note, this is being sold as a decorative item. It has not been tested and may or may not be functional.
