Artima Sunbox

This simple metal sheet box is marked "Made in France" on the front. It is clearly from the same origin as the Artex and Week-end whose trademarks were filed by Artima in 1937.
The four small rivets visible on front face are affixing two chrome plated plates serving as mirrors for the viewfinders. This solution does seem to not provide sufficient flatness and the image is almost incomprehensible for a suitable framing.

A single shutter speed, neither pose nor diaphragms, even less focus, the simplicity in terms of "box".
