The Imperial Mark XII Flash was made in Chicago by Herbert George. It took 6x6 images on 620 film.
Like many Imperial cameras, it was made of plastic and available in several colors. Examples have been observed in red, light blue, a brighter blue, gray, black, tan and green. There were also variants with different face plates.
The design is very basic, having fixed focus, one shutter speed and a single aperture; although it was (of course) available with a flash unit. It uses an eye-level viewfinder and has a handy wrist strap riveted to the side of the camera's body.
This camera looks great on a shelf with black and white photos. This is a mint green camera with a dark green flash in eye catching candy colors!
