13×18 Plate camera…….mouse food.

Salvaged this plate camera from a family of mice by the looks of things. Along the front standard has been nibbled away by tiny teeth. The front top of bellows had been had a go at also.
I quite like the nibbled marks so have not done anything to them, the bellows I have repaired with the usual book binding tape.

It came with two double dark slides which are in ok condition on one side of each so useable for wet plate.

The camera bellows rotate on the front standard to allow for portrait/landscape orientation.
The rear standard has three settings that clip into the base section and focus adjusted with the usual rack.

A little unusual this one so might just keep it, looks a little like an Eugen Loeber camera. If anyone knows anything else about this one can you let me know. Cheers.
