    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

    ..cleaned up ok Dany, too bad that you had to paint it though.
    Nice artwork on the faceplate.
