Shew, James Fludger | Eclipse Apparatus | English | Quarter Plate

ENGLISH STRUT TYPE FIELD CAMERA. c1890. The 'Eclipse Apparatus' was manufactured between 1885 and 1894 when the name was dropped from Shew's catalogue upon the introduction of the Xit. An informed estimate, based on the introduction of various patented modifications, would place my Eclipse at 1890. Fittings for the extra viewfinder are present, so I am looking for the correct viewfinder.
