Scovill Mfg. Co.
Wale Universal Lens
& Mathein Shutter -
Notes: This very
striking-looking brass shutter has been called The Wale Shutter, whereas
George Wale apparently only made lenses (explaining why the title states that
these are Wale Universal Lenses). The shutter was patented by F.J. Mathein and assigned to
The Scovill & Adams Co.
