    The Silver King is a wonderful piece of art-deco styling, from "The Camera Man" of Chicago. It's made of bakelite and has an aluminum back. The faceplate was made in silver with black lettering, and in black with silver lettering. I have been lucky enough to acquire both variants with their respective original boxes.
    There is no date to be found for this camera in McKeown's Price Guide, but I'm going to guess 1939, based on similar Chicago "minicams" of the era.
