I've posted the pictures here.

Does anyone here have any clue what could go inside a case like this? The construction makes me think that it's an earlier Graflex or Folmer & Schwing case, but I don't know any products from that era which would fit in that case.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

A 1A Graflex comes to mind but I don't know the dimensions of the camera or the inside of the case compartment.

Honestly, the more I look at it, the more I think it's a Kodak case, not a Graflex. The leather on the Graflex cases was smooth, but the leather on this case is nearly identical to the covering I've seen on Kodak cameras from 1900s-1910s


I wish I knew where to look something like this up!

Graflex used XXX Moroccan leather until 1947 when they switched to Naugahyde but some early 1947 cameras have leather as they used up all the existing stock.

The Graflex 3A was sold under both Folmer and Schwing Department of Eastman Kodak and as a Kodak.

Thanks! That's useful information about the leather.


I'm pretty sure that camera won't fit in this case. The interior is made of two compartments. One is 7.25" x 1.75" in size, the other is 7.5" x 1.4"

Perhaps it's intended for a field camera that can break down?
