A truly stunning example of 1930's Art Deco styling, this is an antique Argus camera, model A produced between 1936-1941.

Black bakelite body with metal components. Art deco detail on camera back. Full-focusing f4.5 Anastigmat lens. Comes complete with brown leather case.

Camera is in good vintage condition; case shows signs of wear, appropriate for age. Camera is clean inside, with a working shutter--however, the plate that contacts with the film plane has come loose, and needs to be re-adhered. I have not tested the camera and it is sold as-is.

Camera measures 5" x 3" x 3" removed from case, with lens barrel extended.
