Antique "Kodak Pocket" camera and carrying case. Color "sparkling green," Manufactured in Rochester, NY by the Eastman Kodak Company from 1926 to 1932. The No. 1A Pocket Kodak was a folding camera. It made 2 1/2" by 4 1/4" exposures. The pocket No. 1A used A116 film.
An interesting Kodak ad that appeared in the April 1930 edition of the Ladies Home Journal described these colorful times as follows: "Gay as seventeen ... feminine as Eve ... smart as an Easter hat ... is this exquisite Eastman creation. Paris inspired, it reflects the mode of Spring ... Like all members of the famed Kodak family, it takes wonderful pictures ... clean-cut, sparkling.and, so easily ... you simply press a lever."
Condition is very good, excellent functionally and cosmetically; to the best of my knowledge this camera is all original, it appears to have been minimally used, no holes in bellows, the camera and the case display some minor soiling and handling wear, the strap is broken off of the case and there is slight fraying, see photos as part of the description. This camera came from the estate of a retired military photographer who collected photography items, see my other listings for more cameras, photography books and for antique photo albums from the same estate.
