View Full Version : Kodak Petite - Art Deco Lady's Camera

10-14-2009, 03:07 PM

So I came across a really sharp kodak petite that is turquoise & purple w/ the step pattern faceplate. It has the desirable colored bellows.

It is identical to the left-most one in the row of 5 in this link.... http://kodak.digitalfx.tv/html/pet.html

I'm gonna go back and look at it again, it's in an antique store here in town. I'm wondering if anyone would be interested or if you could give me a reasonable estimate of how much they're worth.

As I recall, the bellows were in great shape, indeed, everything was good, but not MINT. I'd say good+. The case is there too.

Thanks, any insight would be appreciated!

127 film from Freestyle & it would look good being used. Probably one of those things you might have to check evilbay for value though. My '01-'02 guide shows $300-$500 w/step pattern and original bellows. Blcak replacement bellows is considerably less. Condition has a lot to do with it too.
The value goes up if you have someone trying to complete a collection.

Nice piece of equipment. I'd say it's about $300 in a good+ condition, most. Is there a box/case? If yes, only then it could go up to $500, as John said.

whoa, yes there is a case, but no box I believe. The antique dealer is asking $95!!! and a discount would probably be in order too. It's so cool looking, I think I might have to just get it anyways.

Thanks all!
