This vintage twin lens reflex (TLR) camera is the lens Tower Reflex 30 (Bolta), produced from 1955-1959 by Bolta / Photavit in Germany and sold in the United States under the Sears brand. The camera comes with a side-mound Kako flash (95-860) and a red leather carrying case for both items.

TLR cameras were developed to make it easier to focus between shots. The top opens up to reveal the viewfinder, and the camera is held at waist level. This camera has Isco-Gottingen Westar lenses, 75mm f 3.5. It has a Vero shutter, 1/25 - 1/200. The camera takes 120 film, and it has a red window in back (covered by a little door) to view the picture number. There's a manual film advance on the right side.

The Kako flash mounts on a hotshoe on the right side of the camera and has a cord that plugs in to synchronize the flash. It runs on battery or AC pack (not included) and has a variety of settings.

The case is marked Top Grain Cowhide, Made in U.S.A. It's red leather with a long strap and a buckle closure. The case is in good condition, with some wear to the leather (particularly on the strap and the buckle tab), but no tears or real damage.

The camera and flash are untested but appear to be in very good condition. The shutter seems to work, and all the dials move easily. There is some wear and loss of paint on the exterior.

Size: The camera is 5 1/2 x 3 7/8 x 4 3/4 inches (14 x 9.8 x 12 cm)
