Amazing work IanG !
Concerning the bellows, it seems that you switched from original square corners to truncated ones.

Yes, I might go back to square corners for that camera, actually the manufacturers of that Quarter plate Victo Houghton Ltd switched from square corners as can be seen here with my Houghton Duchess.

Houghton cameras were made by various companies they owned, field cameras mostly by Butcher. I have quite a few Houghton, Butcher etc field cameras as well as SLRs.

Very nice item !
Houghton and associated/merged companies created some very attractive camera . I have no "wood and brass" camera from this manufacturer" but only three modest models. The one I prefer is the Ensignette No2.

I love these vintage cameras. The restoration work by both you Dany and by Ian is beautifully done.

I finally found a replacement bellow for my Instantograph.
It has been easier to install than to find
