Made by Tomioka Optical (Japan) in the 1950's, this beautiful Ricoh 35mm camera is in good condition and was equipped with a range finder and a rapid film advance lever.
Made out of metal, this Ricoh 35 looks and feels the part and is very visually appealing. This camera has not been tested but the shutter speeds sound about right. Bulb mode is operational. Please note that this camera is over 50 years of age and has some dings and minor scratches. The bottom right open/close knob seems to have trouble gripping the grove. The leather is primarily all there. Comes with the original manual. The leather case is ready to tap out but is included and could be restored with proper care. As they say, this was a poor man's Leica. A great piece for your collection or for your shelf decor!
