Agfa Ansco No 1A Readyset Royal - Nice Condition

54.99

Very cool antique Agfa Ansco camera, the No 1A Readyset Royal. In very nice condition considering its age. Bellows are clean and flex easily, lenses are clear. Shutter fires. Exterior leatherette, designed to emulate ostrich skin, is in nice shape, though a small portion of that leatherette is missing (see pictures). 

From Tomei Collection: "The Agfa Readyset models were introduced in the 1920's in direct competition with the new colored Kodak models. They were stylish with bright unusual colors and textured grains simulating Silver Fox and Ostrich leathers. Along with the Kodak Vanity series, the Readyset Royal models targeted the booming market for stylish clothes and matching accessories. Agfa merged with Ansco in 1928 and the camera shown here is the model 1A produced from 1928 to 1932 at the onset of the Great Depression when the market for fanciful cameras could have been expected to fade rapidly. However, it did not. Cameras became family treasures even more."

I do not have a means of testing this camera, thus am selling as-is. I am happy to answer any questions you might have.

I make good faith efforts to describe my items accurately. Please look at photos carefully and fully read the descriptions prior to purchase, and feel free to contact me at any time with any questions you might have, or if you would like to see any additional photos. 

I do my best to estimate shipping costs - if you would like to combine with other items or just arrange a free local pickup, just let me know before you purchase any items. If the difference between what I request for postage and what the actual cost is happens to be more than $2, I will refund the difference. If requesting international shipment, please contact me beforehand and I can estimate costs to your country.
