Lerebours Portrait Petzval 250mm F4.5
History: A very interesting Portrait petzval for the 5x7 and fullplate format. Lerebours was one of the earliest and most reknowed optical makers in the early years of photography. Darlot, Vallantin and many others honed their skills in his workshop before they went on and opened up their own buisness. Much of what we know and use from the that era started all in his workshop.
Condition: The lens is in very nice and authentic condition. The brass of the lens comes with a golden patina, showing only minimal wear. The rack & pinion is comple and working. The glass is in a good condition, the rear glass has two minor edge chips but this wont affect the image quality in the slightest. All in all the condition is still good considering the age of the lens.
has about 250mm focal lenght (10") and an open aperture of
F4.5. It will cover 5x7 and fullplate format with a nice petzval character especially at portrait distance.
Lens comes with a fitting flange, and a plastic lens cap.
