Asanuma Studio Camera Clock.| Novelty model camera.
Catalogue No. 0136
I haven’t room for a studio mobile stand camera like Rob's beautiful and very rare one, even if I could find one; so here is a model of one, made by Asanuma, a firm founded in Japan in 1871, and now I believe a subsidiary of Copal. They manufactured photography related novelty items, now rare, like this model studio camera/clock. This is noted among the non-camera items on p. 1092 of Jim McKeown's "Price Guide to Antique and Classic Cameras" as being made by the Copal Co. Ltd.

    Yes it's a good model. Pity it's only plastic!
