Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.
History: This is a very rare and most interesting Lens. It was made by Gasc & Charconnet in the 1860ies and features a 'Globe Lens' layout which was used by  Harrison and some more major makers used. This is the first and only Globe Lens made by Gasc & Charconnet that i've seen so far.

 The focal lenght is about 120mm and it will cover 5x7 and 8x10 formats.

The lens features a still working revlving aperture which offers F11 when shot wide open.

Condition: This specimen comes in a nice and authentic condition. The brass still shows the nice and warm patina of time passed. The glass is mostly in good condition also, there are no signs of speration, haze or any damage. The revolving aperture works as it should.

Lens comes with the original flange.

A rarely found lens, that will make a great landscape shooter and a nice conversation piece.
