    It looks like it has the right logo, but I think the Caleb (made by Demaria Freres in Paris) was a folding plate camera. Of course, Demaria probably made other models as well - I know they made a field camera. What's the name on the lens? And what are the dimensions of the camera?

    can't tell what the name on the lens is - Demaria did make good cameras and this looks like a good one

    I'm no expert, but just wanted to comment on the beautiful wood and finish; it's representative of everything today's plastic cameras are not.
