This is a fairly rare (yes, that overused word but this one is) 5x7 Reflex camera by the Reflex Camera Co of Newark NJ (formerly known as the Borslum Camera Company). It dates to around 1910 per McKeown. Parts of it are in rough shape but its pretty cool, particularly that big hood and the gold lettering. The shutter seems to be intact, I'm not sure how it works but I dont think it is at present. Lens is a more modern, I think, Wollensak Velostigmat Series II, 8 1/4". Anyone interested? Photos on Flickr.

It's huge, and very heavy (around 11-12 lbs, my scale gave an error message) so shipping wont be cheap. Make me an offer if you're interested.
