Two vintage cameras isn't really a camera collection, but this Accumulator Seriali series is also about accumulations, not just about things I specifically collect. These adorable cameras were given to me by my father, but they originally belonged to his father or grandfather. The Zeiss Ikon Baby Box (that really is such a baby camera at only 8cm / 3.1" tall) is from the 1930's. The larger Kodak Brownie Reflex Synchro is from 1940's.
I don't know anything about cameras, really. At least not about old film cameras, so I don't know if these two are in working condition. I highly doubt it, though. Neither one is worth much, but I don't really save stuff because it's worth something. These are simply just too cool to let my father throw them away!
I have a little shelf on the livingroom wall where I gather a changing collection of pretty things. That's were these cameras currently hang out.
Keeping the vintage cameras company: a wooden artists' book by Francesca Iannaccone, a selection of random brass sculpture things (and a wonderful old ladle), our netsukes, and my grandfather's sand jars. There's also an empty space for something tall I've yet to come up with. I'm thinking some beautiful old bottle or vase could go there - maybe with a single flower in it, if I feel like splurging a tiny bit.
Today is my second to last day in London, and I hope I can build an entirely new display with my new finds once I return home!
