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.

For ground glass Satin Snow.

For the plates I am not sure. Do a search on here for glass plates as I think it was brought up before.

Not sure if this link will help but maybe a start;

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.
