This cardboard camera is in sound condition, though a little worn at the edges. Probably had a spring on the shutter originally.

Lens is present, but no films.

Some corrosion on metal parts.

Circa 1910.

The gold lettering on one side reads :

Le Parisien



I can't make out what the design on the shutter represents. Maybe some foliage.

See the Collectiblend online price guide for Clemente "Le Paris" for comparison.

The sliding box, or box-in-a-box design is not for focusing as was used on Daguerreotype and wet-plate collodion cameras,

but simply to close the camera and hold the film in place.

As I said before, I don't have any flm for this camera.
