This vintage metal box camera is covered in a crackle finish, described in the 1930's Ensign catalogue as "crystalline enamel" and was made in England by Houghton from 1927.
This camera uses 120 film, which is still widely available and has a working shutter, plus an ingenious extending lens that pulls out from the camera front for nearer distances (10 feet or under). It includes time and instant shutter options and small, medium and large apertures too.
This vintage Ensign also has two brilliant viewfinders and a pull-out wire frame finder. The camera is very good condition with only minor signs of wear on the edges of the crackle finish and paint (see photos). The camera is supplied with a leather handle on top, though this is not the original one (it comes from a similar aged Kodak Hawkeye). The camera is supplied with its original bag, which is also in very good condition.
