Bilora Boy Camera

5"x5" oil on door skin panel I have always loved this camera and had been hunting for one for quite some time when one popped up on Etsy. So, BAM, I picked it up and here it is in oil paint. This little bakelite beauty was Germany's post WWII response to the Kodak Brownie. And a beautiful response it was. Just a wonderful example of great industrial design with its elegant, yet simple lines. Can you tell?—I love this camera. Just like the little promo says, "Mensch prima!" I have no idea what that means, but I do know that is either an awfully small boy or an awfully large camera in that ad.
