I’m not quite sure of the when of this flash (guessing mid-1950s) or the model number but I do know that it was made by Zeiss Ikon in Germany. It’s falling apart – the plastic is very brittle, the original 22 1/2 volt battery looks like a science experiment and it obviously doesn’t work. On the plus side, the vinyl case is still in good (not great) condition, the metal fan reflector looks good and works and the flash bulb and connecting wire look fantastic.
Anyway, another example of mid-century design. I imagine when it was new it was pretty cool and would slip into a pocket or camera bag with ease.
Thanks for stopping by! – Chris
