Materials: walnut-stained cherry body, cherry base, black leatherette bellows ; nickeled hardware
Sizes Offered: 5x12; 7x17; 8x20
Notes: The fitted canvas case is made tall enough to hold plates vertically, and fits three abreast.  Since the camera is not as tall, there is a built-in shelf to set the camera on so that it is more reachable that if it was all the way at the bottom of the case.  Not offered as late as 1912, so introduced 1913-1914.  The 5x12"camera above is  from the Ralph Naylor collection.
