    FS: One beautiful brass lens. This is a Hyatt Rapid Atelier ƒ/5 lens. Widely acknowledged as a re-branded Wollensak Vesta, this is a Petzval design. Lens is marked for the whole plate format 6 1/2 x 8 1/2; focus is about 12 inches.

    Glass is clear with a very slight bit of separation at the very extreme edge under the words "Rapid Atelier". It does not affect the image. Otherwise no issues. Flange is included. Pneumatically-operated Studio shutter has just been cleaned and adjusted and is working very nicely. No bulb included.

    $525 plus shipping/insurance/PayPal. No trades. Domestic shipping via USPS Priority Mail. I'm happy to ship overseas via USPS Express Mail International. But please do not ask me to falsify customs forms.

    Open to offers. Clean Petzval for whole plate in a beautiful brass barrel no dents no dings with the original flange and a good-working CLA'd Studio shutter.
