Used Voigtlander & Sohns Petzval Lens #6805 1857-60 RARE

$1,995.00

Very early Voigtlander lens, serial number 6805, appears to be a Petzval lens dating to 1857, without waterhouse stops. Lens is most likely designed for quarter plate photography, although it appears it would comfortably cover 4×5 but edges may be soft. Lens is in nice condition, however focus mechanism may be stripped and it is difficult to extend lens. Internal glass shows a couple very light water spots but overall nice for age. An attempt to polish this lens may have been made on top where engraving is.
