Description

Red (so presumably "old rose") version of the Rainbow Hawk-Eye No 2A Folding camera with original red bellows. The bellows are very stiff and rather dry. The bodywork on this example is in good order with just a few chips on the enamel and a few scuffs to the leatherette covering.

Notes

Compare with the smaller Rainbow Hawk-Eye No 2 Folding camera and the Special version.
