All-original early 20th century (1906-1910) American industrial oversized three-legged mobile camera stand.
Designed and fabricated by the Century Camera division of the Eastman Kodak Company in Rochester, NY.
The "model 4” Century Studio stand is comprised of solid mahogany wood with a dark cherry finish.
The legs are bolted tightly against two baked black enameled cast iron support brackets that house the centrally located square-shaped self-locking jack.
The original casters and oversized floor stop lever are intact and original to the stand. The jack is moved up and down with the use of a large cast iron wheel with a crank handle.
Signs of use and storage. The wood is very good condition and would be easily restored. The felt is ripped, and crank works great. Still together and operates.
29 x 31 x 48 inches.
