1880's VOIGTLANDER - HUGE 7-inch EURYSCOPE BRASS CAMERA LENS (Voigtländer)

 

Description:

A massive 7 inch (178mm) long brass Voigtländer & Sohn antique brass lens, (serial number 29975), c.1880, with a lovely brown patina.  I have been informed that it is a "Euryscope Series IV" designed for use with very large 20" x 24" glass plates! Including the hood, it measures 8" (203mm) in length.  It has a metal plate/bracket with fixing holes at one end to attach to a camera box (it would have been a very large camera!).  The lens housing is enamelled black, and the interior of the barrel is matt black.  The focussing distance appears to be 24½" (measured by focussing object and measuring distance from Waterhouse stop).  The barrel of the lens has a slot in which to slide Waterhouse stops (none included).  The barrel is engraved with "7", which I presume is the lens size number.  It is also engraved with the same number on the fixing plate.  "Voigtländer & Sohn, Wien, Braunschweig" and "No. 29975" are also engraved on the barrel.  This lens weighs in excess of 3.2 kilos (unpacked).

Overseas Bidders: Shipping costs worldwide by 'Parcelforce International' are estimated as follows and the actual cost will be calculated depending on the final hammer price (for insurance), please only bid if you are prepared to pay these postage costs, and wait for an invoice if you are the winning bidder:

France or Germany: GBP 74.00

Italy or Spain: GBP 81.00

USA or Canada: GBP 104.90

Australia, Japan or China: GBP 118.60

 Condition / Defects:

Please refer to the photographs: The brass case is in generally good solid condition (the brass has not been polished).  The lenses are in good condition generally, however there are some tiny air bubbles within the glass (original to their manufacture and not damage).  Defects: The outside of the glass lenses have a couple of very small scratches and pits and the inside of the lenses have dirt marks.  The lens hood is slightly squashed on the outer edge.  It was very dusty inside and had cobwebs which I have carefully removed, however, I'm sure it would benefit from a professional clean. One end will unscrew, but I have not been able to unscrew the other end.

Dimensions:

Approx: diameter of glass lenses 4 1/8" (105mm),

length of barrel including lens hood and fixing plate 8" (203mm),

diameter of fixing plate 6¾" (170mm), diameter of hood 5 7/8" (150mm).
