This rare little subminiature gem is a true collector's piece, filled with vintage personality and early mid century charm. This miniature Crystar candid camera was made in the 1950's, marketed as a spy camera. It works with miniature film and would have produced 10 real photos per roll, sized 14mm x 14mm. It comes with the original cardboard Crystar camera box with fantastic graphics and lettering.
This adorable mini camera would be perfect for your next photography project, addition to your camera collection or home decor.
►Made of metal and black leather panels, the camera measures about 2.5" inches by 1 1/2" by 1 1/2."
►Camera is in good vintage condition, the cardboard box is fair with some pictured dents and staining. It will come with all pictured components (no leather case). Please see all 5 item photos for additional views and camera details.
