I've finally gotten control of my collecting habits and updated the main display of vintage wood and brass cameras; ranging from the mid-1870s to around 1913. The collection used to be much bigger, but it has been culled back to very special items. Larger format cameras are displayed separately around my home office because they don't fit on the shelves. All-in-all, it's pleasant to be able to work surrounded by polished mahagany and gleaming brass. The only problem is keeping the cameras dust free.

    It is good to see that the shelf-gods have smiled upon you ! Extraordinary collection. Always a pleasure to see parts of it.

    Rob, I think I might cry. That is one breathtaking collection. I have yet to acquire a single wood and brass camera for my collection!

    Beautiful collection! You must be very proud!
  4. rniederman rniederman, 3 years ago
    Thanks for all of the compliments! The display is the culmination of over 20 years of search and refinement (i.e. continuous upgrading to more interesting items). Although I continue to look for interesting cameras; accessories will slowly be added to make it a bit more diverse and interesting.

    An amazing collection. Thanks for sharing it here.

    Rob Niederman,
    Your camera site Antique & 19th Century Cameras is one of the top researched and professionally presented on the internet. It reflects years of work and a lifetime of refining your taste to get it to that point. Congratulations on a work well done.
    Matt Isenburg, a fan of yours since Cape Cod.

    Wow! That looks incredible.

    I've never really been a fan of vintage cameras, but something about this display I could sit and look at all day!

    Hi BigToyAuction ... thanks for the compliment! - Rob

    Awesome - I'm just getting started with cameras with only 5 so far.
  10. rniederman rniederman, 2 years ago
    Hi WinterWolf; Glad to hear that you're interested in cameras. It's fun, challenging and the history is amazingly interesting. IMO, its about quality over quantity. I purposely keep my collection small. So starting posting your cameras here, we look forward to seeing them! Is there a particular area or types of cameras you are collecting?

    Really nice camera collection...I had a problem with dust for all my books,... so I bought tall old glass door and built some frames for the doors and it woorks like a charm...
  21. rniederman rniederman, 1 year ago
    Thanks, Roycroftbooksfromme1! Before moving into my current house, this collection was behind glass. Oddly, everything still got dusty because of the air pressure changes from seasonal heating and cooling.

    Thanks, Perry! I appreciate the comment as well; however as you might imagine, dust is a problem.
  37. Vintagefran Vintagefran, 11 months ago
    Just like to say what a great collection you have.
    They look grand. I wouldn't want to do the dusting though. I've found even inside a glass cabinet things get dusty.
