No. 4 Kodet box camera. It is missing the back door and the side door is not attached. The rest seems to be OK and it even has three double plate holders and a ground glass frame. The leather is dry but in original condition and not spoiled with a thick layer of shoe polish.
There are only two box Kodet cameras, the smaller No. 3 Kodet and this one for 4 x 5 inch photos. The No. 3 is extremely rare, only 405 being made, but this larger one is also not seen often. During the period 1894 - 1897 only 1413 were made. So if you want one, get it now. Still 6 days to go, no bids yet and starting price is $ 400.
A nice non-Kodak item for sale is this 5 x 7 inch group photo with a young lady holding a large box camera. I don't recognize the camera, but as far as I can see it is no Kodak. It would be a nice addition to any collection of turn of the century photography. Still 3 days to go, 2 bids yet, price $ 1.04.
