Offering a unique vintage 1940’s-50’s drafting table. The fantastic cast iron hardware and knobs are an excellent example of original industrial design.

LEICA (E. LEITZ WETZLAR) RANGEFINDER FOR 1930s LEICA CAMERA

Leica 1

E. Leitz Wetzlar (Leica) Rangefinder

Manufactured in the 1930s

Measurement in Feet (Imperial/Standard)
Made in Germany
 
Offering an early Leica rangefinder in excellent working order.  There are signs of age and use, but a very solid vintage bit of Leica kit.  This rangefinder could be mounted to most early cameras, from various manufacturers.  Although, an early Leica camera owner would find it very desirable.
The range-finder is very accurate. The dial is in feet, as opposed to metres. It was obviously made for the UK or US markets. The dial moves very smoothly and the viewer is easy to use. There are some scratches to the glass, but nothing which would impair it’s use. The brass is showing through in various areas of the black paint and nickel plated pieces. It’s in fantastic shape for it’s age and will work perfectly with an early Leica camera. Likely manufactured in the mid-1930s. Made in Germany.
