Hi again, I now have the camera in my sweaty mit and here are the pictures. It is a fantastic piece of mahogany albeit with some damage. All parts are original but the GG was wasted by the postal system so a new one will be required. It has much in common with the 5x4 Gandolfi traditional I have - all the screw heads line up for e.g., some of the brass parts look very similar. Anyway, what do you think ? A happy Easter cleaning and restoring in prospect
I found a chap who kindly offered to sell me a 15x12 bookform holder so I am nearly ready to get started.
