Story

This appliance has been manufactured under licence from Coronet CO. an English brand and by Tiranty CO. a French brand.

Coronet was an English camera manufacturer who designed many “cheap” models as well as folding cameras (like the model above).

It is thanks to a French collaboration that this model was born. But not only this one, others were born and even some with Boyer lenses.
