Clix-O-Flex Camera Reflex Style 1940's Bakelite Art Deco Metro Industries USA 127 Film Cameras Vintage Lomography Decor Collecting Cameras
This is a Clix-O-Flex reflex style Camera made by Metropolitan Industries in Chicago USA in the 1940's. The camera is patent pending 1940 and has the original strap that loops over metal side buttons. The body of the camera is a polished bakelite that has a wonderful example of the Art Deco styling of the time. The camera has some wear and rust/corrosion along the front clix-o-Flex plate around that is screwed on. The silver domed top pulls open to reveal the viewfinder. There is a bit of green colored lube around the hinges, as it has aged and reacted over the years. The shutter works fast on both settings and the viewfinder unmarred. There is some dust in the lens that could do with cleaning. The camera takes 127 film and has not been tested. The inside of the case is clean and functional and the two red viewfinders (to help with film forwarding) are clear and clean. It also comes with the original neck strap. The camera is sold as is as I could not test with film. It is a lovely Art Deco bakelite piece to add to your collection or your could use it for parts.
