    Would anyone know where I can get hold of (several) plate holders for a Contessa Nettel 'Altura', along with a ground glass focusing screen.

    I have just aquired this wonderful camera. It is in a bit of a poor state, but it can easily restored to its former glory. I think it dates from c1920.

    I just need some plate holders and a focusing screen.

    Any info would be most welcome.

    They look like the same 9x12 holders my Voigtlander Avus uses. More importantly, that means they are the same size as the old Soviet Fotokor. I was able to order mine from a Ukranian dealer I had done business with on eBay. He didn't have any listed (I think the possibility that someone would be looking for plate holders was a surprise), but was able to find some. They needed cleaning, but were cheap.
