This model, as with many other Glunz cameras, was made over a long period (at least 1913 to 1930 according to McKeown), but went through several transitions in design over that period. The example is a late form as it has an aluminium (as opposed to wood) body and a frame finder, which was introduced in 1930.
There are many different models available although their basic form is similar. Rollfilm cameras are also to be found by this maker.
