Description

Manufacture Française d'Appareils Photographiques

174 Quai Jemmapes, Paris 10

This is the brown model, not the black.

It has a smooth finish all over.

I will try to take a photo that shows the colour better.

This camera is rare to find without any damage to the bakelite.

However it does have one or two other issues :

The chrome plated parts have considerable corrosion

The small metal tab that stops the front lens element from falling out during focusing is missing.

The shutter functions badly, it tends to open on the return movement of the release.

From 1938 onwards

No damage to the bakelite
