Quite often I buy my collectible cameras more because of aesthetic criteria rather than on technological bases. This was the case for this Falcon Automatic model 2 folder produced by Utility manufacturing Co circa 1939.
This self erecting folder is very basic but I had a shock when I distinguished its nice art deco faceplate in a flea market.
It was in a miserable state and I had to repaint the body entirely.

Now, it looks rather better.

Do you have a photo of it before you painted it?

No I do not. Parts of the paint coat were missing and corrosion started to damage the body

Nice artwork on the faceplate.
