    That's one I have not seen before. Thinking it could be a Welta or Steinheil but the Steinheil Periscope Paris name is usually on the lens.

    This kind of camera was produced circa 1920
    A lot of such "no-name" camera were manufactured at this time and distributed by companies that were not manufacturers.

    An example of a very similar one (1919) found on this amazng web site :

    What a blast from the past, when we lived in Melbourne they use to put yellow skips out for folk to dump their stuff. Then my brother and I would go looking in the skips and we found one of those, but the case was black/brown.
