Bausch & Lomb Petzval lens 250mm F4.5
This nice petzval lens comes from one of the most renowed optical maker in the US, especially in the later part of the photographic era: Bausch & Lomb.
The interesting part here is the focal lenght which is about 250mm (or 10"), its a rather uncommon size and will work nicely for the fullplate format or 8x10 with as much petzval swirls as you can handle.
Condition: This brass beauty comes in a good condition. The brass looks mostly nice and shows only minor wear, the inner barell is coated with Nickel. The rack & pinion mechanism is complete and still working fine. The glass is in good condition, there minor cleaning marks, besides that there is no haze, fungus or seperation visible.
It comes with a very compact flange/retaining ring which also makes it possible to mount the lens on even the smallest lensboard.
