My Dad used to be a professional photographer back in the 1960s and 1970s, and he gave me some of his vintage camera accessories and equipment to pass on to the Etsy community.

I am not familiar with these items myself, but here is the information my Dad provided to me regarding this item: it is a Honeywell Tilt-a-Mite flash unit ("folding fan flashgun"). It's a collector's item from the 1950s/1960s. And, my own note -- it is cool as hell. ;-)

This flash unit needs a battery and a capacitor. It appears to be in good vintage condition, though I have no way of testing it to see if it works. I have been told that while it's fairly easy to find a battery for this piece, it's harder to find a capacitor -- you will probably have to check online. This flash unit has been stored in its original box for years -- the box is included in this listing, as well as the original plastic/vinyl gray holder and the original instructions.

Aside from its possible use as a piece of camera equipment, this piece would be great as part of a steampunk assemblage project. :) It would also be wonderful as a display piece, particularly for a photographer.

This piece measures approximately 4 inches long and the "fan" measures approximately 5 inches wide when open.

If I have overestimated the shipping cost by more than one dollar, I will refund the difference in shipping to the buyer.
