Nice little Quarter Plate Camera

I’ve been looking for a quarter plate field camera for a while now but they have been going for crazy prices on Fleabay. I Picked this one up at a Yorkshire auction house this weekend. Really nice condition, three plate holders and a nifty little wooden box. There no makers names etc but it is exactly in the style of the Butcher & Son National cameras. They were made in 1/4 plate up to 10×12 I believe. link

Beck Symmetrical Lens F8 in good condition with un-named roller blind shutter requiring a little work. Will probably remove the roller shutter anyway and reattach the lens to the lens board.

Will run a few plates through it this week.
