Wuensche Excelsior

Traduction de Manuel M

The name of Reicka comes from Reick, district of the South-east of Dresden, where Wunsche had its factories.

In fact, in spite of a macaroon “Reicka” on the side, it is not the name of this camera. According to my cross-checks, this view camera 13 x 18 would be the model Excelsior and that already present on the site, rather near of aspect, the model Afpi Universal.

This specimen is equipped with a Dialytar lens 155 mm 6.8 of Julius Laack Sohne, Rathnow.

On the Manufrance catalogue of 1910, at the bottom right of page 524, a camera without displayed brand is reproduced, curiously resembling, but in tropicalized version. Would this be the same one?
