Folmer & Schwing Mfg. Co. (New York, NY)

Rollerblind Shutter - 1905-1907



Notes:  Rollerblind shutters for glass plate cameras, like this one, were designed to fit between the camera body and a clip-off camera back.  The larger two frames (one black and one natural in the photo) were necessarily made to fit each design/size of back.  The middle part, slightly smaller, held the working mechanism.  This shutter fits the 6x8" Century/Folmer & Schwing cameras made at the time, or any camera connected with the Eastman Kodak Co. made after about 1910.  This shutter was made before Folmer & Schwing was bought by E.K.C., so predates 1907.
