WOOD AND BRASS CAMERAS

A recent auction of wood and brass cameras included cameras by the English makers of Meagherand Hare. Both were quality camera makers in the second half of the nineteenth century but the higher prices were achieved by the Meagher cameras.

The number of cameras involved was relatively small but there did seem to be a preference for the Meagher.

I would be interested in purchasing good examples of wood and brass cameras by either maker.
