We are offering at auction a collection of cameras lenses and accessories from the estate of a collector in Florida USA.
Many of them are working others have some issues which we will mention in each auction ad. They are for the most part vintage items that are old. You cannot expect them all to be perfect. However most of them are working and are really very nice.
Thank you for your bid on this vintage German Ica Icarette 501 folding camera no. J 47023 c1919. It uses 620 roll film. It features a very nice uncoated Zeiss Jena 120cm/4.5 Tessar lens no.4315718. It’s housed in a non synch Compur dial set shutter with speeds T-B to 1/250th. sec.
This camera has been completely restored. The bellows corners have been sealed and the bellows are light tight and fold/unfold nicely. Any camera made by Ica is a class act. This one is no exception. The finish is black enamel with nickel trim.
The lens is clean and clear and the shutter is working on all the speeds. The slow speeds all sound good. However we do not guarantee that the shutter speeds are 100% accurate. Nice clean viewfinder optics. The optical finder is clean and clear and the bubble level is still wet.
Looking at the film chambers and the ends of the spool spindles, this camera looks like it would be fairly easy to convert to use readily available 120 roll film.
No dent dings corrosion or other issues. Extra nice chrome trim. There are some VERY slight surface marks to the body but nothing ugly. Beautiful leather with no bumps.
If you collect Ica or vintage German folders this will be a great, very near true MINT camera for you!
This is your chance to have a nice clean example of this camera!
