Description: The Curt Bentzin camera company manufactured high-quality cameras beginning in 1889. This camera is based on the popular single lens Fokal-Primar camera, which was manufactured from 1902 through 1938. Its dual lens counterpart, the Bentzin Stereo-Fokal-Primar, produced fine images through its Zeiss Tessar lenses, measuring roughly 2.25 inches high by 5.125 inches wide. The small size was convenient for the photographer, and the high-quality optics allowed for professional results.
