    Offered for your approval, this rare example of a Pathe Freres Cinematograph Hand Driven 28mm Motion Picture Projector sits on the original circa 1912 wood base board and cranks beautifully. Never repainted or restored, this is an original artifact of the 1912 era of Motion Pictures. The 28mm format of film was developed by The Pathe Brothers so they could offer an exclusive format of non flammable film stock to compete with the nitrate and highly flammable format of 35mm film currently in use at the time. This is a truly rare piece that we present for your consideration in hand cranking, film transporting, the glorious intact patina that has accumulated since 1912. This model of the K.O.K 28mm hand crank unit has the later factory offered electric powered options for an included threading lamp and the main lamp house. But film transport was still accomplished by the hand crank mechanism.
