Coronet Fildia Folding Camera c1947


Because these and similar models were mass produced by the Coronet company between 1926 and 1967 the date of manufacture for the individual models shown here are currently uncertain. And it is unclear whether this model used the Coronet’s 120 or 620 film as similar models used different films and some were interchangeable. However, a similar model to this, produced for the French market that used 620 films and made after 1945 has been identified so this model may date to around that time period. For further identification the body of this camera is identical to the Coronet Fildia folding camera c1947 although there are differences in the lens.
