History: A quite interesting lens made very likely by Darlot which is rarily seen on the market today. The Trousse Anachromatique Objectif d'Atelier layout which featured severall lens combinations. The lens derives from the Pulligny & Puyo lenses and offers a pictorealistic image with some nice diffusion to it. It features a rack&pinion to increase the DOF of the final image by increasing and decreasing the distance between the front and rear optical cells. All in all its a fascinating lens not for photographers who want super sharp portraits, but rather for shooters who like the pictorial style.

The lens comes in a collectors condition. The brass parts come unpolished and offer a nice patina, there is minmal wear here and there but its still a beauty to look upon. Three of the glass elements come with bayonet style casings and are in good overall condition, i cant even spot cleaning marks here. The two menisci elements are used for the portrait setup, while for the landscape setup you would use the planoconvex and the planoconcave elements. The planoconvex element without casing comes with some cleaning marks to it, as far as i understand this one was used for the landscape setting and can be swapped with the foremost meniscus lens in the front cell, though i cant guarantee that. The lens comes with a rack & pinion mechanism which is complete and working smoothly.

It will work best for 8x10 and maybe even larger formats (i think up to 11x14).

Lens comes with a flange.
