This is a Vintage ROLLS ROLLAX camera from the 1930s - a nifty old camera with wonderful Art Deco elements. The body is made of harder to find brown bakelite plastic and has nice curved corners and cool details. The faceplate is silver metal, so are the knobs on top. 50mm lens. Takes 1-5/8" x 2-1/2" photos.

A perfect item to add to a display cabinet or camera collection.
Condition:

Cosmetics - Very good. Clean, no major chips, cracks or damage. Some age spots on the metal bits.
Lens - Not very clean, but not scratched or broken either.
Shutter - Cocks and fires.

Inside it is marked Chicago, Il USA.

Where did this camera come from? I purchased this one and many others at auction from a collection from a photography store. They seemed to have been cleaned professionally at one point, but they have been sitting around for some time. I only clean the outside, leatherette and big grungy bits very gently. I do not wipe lenses, I simply dust them a bit with a soft brush. I never use compressed air to clean my cameras as that may damage them and just blows the dust around. I do not test any camera with film, but I do test their mechanics. Any small or significant issues are always disclosed.
