€800.00 EUR

Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.

History: A very nice and early Darlot portrait petzval which comes in a perfect focal lenght for 5x7 portrait work. Focal lenght and speed almost match those of the famous Dallmeyer 2B, and the image on the groundglass shows also similarities.

Its engraved with 'Darlot Opticien - DA - 29.746' which puts it in the early 1870ies.

This quite nice Petzval design lens comes almost in a collectors condition. The brass parts come unpolished with some patina, there is minmal wear here and there but its still a beauty to look upon. The rack & pinion is there and works most of the time. The glass is in good condition, there are the usuall cleaning marks and tiny specs like always, but besides that there is no haze, fungus or anything that would impair the imaging quality here.

It has a focal lenght of 220mm at a speed of F3.5. It will work best as a portrait lens for 4x5 and 5x7 formats with a distinct petzval characteristic on the ground glass.

Lens comes with a flange.
