It is made to take 3.25 x 4.25, 4in x 5in or 5in x 7in plates although this particular camera has a wooden film holder/winder attached to the back. The mahogany framed case is in very nice shape with the fold down board having a nice glossy patina. On the base board sits two ivory coloured plaques one with the name and address of the retailer J. Robinson & Son, 65 Grafton Street, Dublin while the other states that it is'The Pullman Camera' By'S.L & Co' with the serial number'211201'. The brass fittings including the rack upon which the camera extends are also very nice, the hinges are also good. The red bellows are as you would expect worn but look fine without any obvious damage. The'Kodar' F -7.9 lens is not original to the camera, it is however in good shape with good optics and clean aperture blades. The shutter may also be Kodak and fires very well via its release cord.
The leather case is missing its top flap (which attaches to the lock). The two side flaps are present and are partially attached and will need repair near the fold (Please view photos carefully to confirm condition).This is an exceptionally rare camera in any condition and is sure to attract interest from professional restorers.
