Burke and James sold them as "Rexo" and yours wound up being sold by Northern Camera Supply of Minneapolis MN as a "Liberty". I have it's big brother Seneca 11X14 that I'm just in the process of restoring. It has quite a bit of broken wood to re-glue and also has weakened front standard supports that I have to figure out how to repair.

    VERY pretty!
    I find one which is similar http://www.fiberq.com/cam/seneca/sencamcity3.htm but Seneca begin producing cameras in 1900. And than it would be difficult to apply for a patent in 1898.

    Don't you just love those old things? I hope that you get it right with the 11x14! I had to knock the wood apart and remove old bone gloe than reglue the whole thing. some wood I had to repair or filled out with new ones! Not the easiest thing to do but it's worth it! This is my Sunday camera! :-)
