Another car boot find.
This little thing measures about two inches high, and 1 1/2 across.
Internet sources came up with the 1917 patent, a picture of the illustration is included above:
The advert for the model "B" from 1930/31 came from this site:
and thanks for the info found there!
Not sure of the exact date, but there was a model "C" sold recently here:
These were not made after 1961 according to the site linked above, and I have found several examples like mine on various sites, this model was made to fit Leica and Rollei cameras with a Compur shutter according to the original boxes seen on ebay and other sites.
Thanks for looking.
