    Here's a pretty little 5" f3.5 Petzval. It vignettes a 4X5 at infinity.

    Lens board isn't included. I cobbled it together to give it a try. Everything went wrong and my one attempt turned out to be an unexplainable double exposure.

    I don't have a flange for it, but it's light and won't be hard to mount in wood.

    this pic shows that it had some fungus once upon a time but glass is not etched and it has been cleaned properly.

    No flange for it. Same price. Pretty little thing. No markings at all. Likely french.
    $225 for this. A lot of fun and creativity for a cheap price. This is probably 1890, very likely french. $225 + shipping
