Very basic black box camera for 127 film size. Also available in burgundy & green. A note in the camera stating film size (in pencil), also carries the date 1927. Camera name stamped into front face (apparently not all carried the name thus).

The camera is in good overall condition with only very minor marking to leatherette and minimal corrosion.
