Vintage German Camera Tripod with Linhof Pan and Ball and Socket Head

£25.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

The black painted tripod has tubular legs with a single extension tube each and a pull-out extending central tube allowing the camera mount height to be adjusted between 66 and 146 cm. The leg and column extensions can be locked using screw collars or a locking screw. The tripod is believed to date from the 1930s or 40s and carries a stamped label "H.J. Riess, Munchen 15". The tripod appears to be clean and free from damage a[part from slight chipping to the paint and tool marks on the screw lock collars.

A Linhof pan head, serial no. 204335, is mounted to the top of the tripod via a camera-type mounting screw and socket. The pan rotation is indicated by 15-degree lines read against a fixed red arrow on the tripod mount. The quadrant degrees are marked. The pan can be locked by a screw. A ball-and-socket vertical orientation device mounted above the pan head carries a two-diameter camera mounting screw and can be oriented between vertical and horizontal at two angles of pan 90 degrees apart. The vertical orientation can be locked by a rotating cam. The cam handle carries "Linhof" in red engraving and "Germany" in black.
