Gundlach-Manhattan Optical Co. Korona Stereo

As was common with turn of the century optical companies, Gundlach went through a series of owners and naming variations. Based on the branding, this particular example was likely made somewhere between 1903 and the war years. Interestingly, while most Korona cameras had an ivorene maker's plate at the base of the front stand, this one does not. Instead the maker's information has been engraved on the decorative plate between the lenses. If the label appears crooked, that's because it is! Presumably, this was a manufacturing deffect. I would love to see if any other Korona cameras of this period had the same deffect.
