ENQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM...

Giant Leica III camera model, 1933

Leica III: an extremely rare giant pre-war model of a Leica rangefinder camera, of gargantuan proportions, produced as a display piece to promote the release of the Leica III in 1933.

The dummy, realistically modelled with an Elmar 50 mm f/3.5 lens, measures a massive 21 inches (53 cm) long and is complete with an actual Leica III black (with leather case, not shown), serial number 125842 of the same era, with its Leica-branded display ‘hand’ and publicity card for the company entitled Ballerina, taken by photographer Istvan Sved.

It is not known who produced these large-scale dummies for Leica, although similar large scale dummies of the Contax II and Rolleiflex can be found, this one is exceptionally rare, and the most desirable.

Size of dummy: 21 inches (53 cm) long, 11 inches (28 cm) tall.
