A lifetime of passion and dedication has created this exceptional collection of 402 antique and vintage cameras. A comprehensive snapshot representing a 19th and 20th century sociological, photographic, inventive and creative history of precision engineering from across the world.

Having travelled during his career, the collector has acquired examples from many different countries over a number of decades, many of which are in exceptional condition due to the collector’s love and respect for the pieces. The time and immense care taken to accumulate this spectacular collection adds great value beyond the individual costs of each camera, just as a great work of art is comprised of many elements to form a whole.

Modern Decorative has been consigned to oversee the sale of this collection. It is the collector’s wish that it is sold as an entire group. Any offers received on specific pieces will be forwarded to the successful buyer of the collection upon request.

Leica, Rolleiflex, Voigtlander, Ensign, Hasselblad, Nikon, Canon, Zeiss Ikon, Kodak, Lubitel, Eho-Altissa, Yashica, Fexaret, Eumig, Minolta, Gaumont, Bolex, Korelle-Werk, Exakta, Contaflex, Pentax, Mamiya, FED, Zorki, Praktica.
