Description

The Rapier was produced by Birmingham based company Coronet Camera Company in the late 1950’s. The Coronet Camera Company, founded in 1926 by F.W. Pettifer, mostly produced budget priced box and folding camera  distributed through mail order catalogues. After the second world war Coronet joined with French company Tiranty of Paris, to avoid French import restrictions, these cameras usually have ‘Made in France’ on the face plate. The firm made all sorts of camera equipment, flash units, filters, even their own brand of film, over all the company made over 50 cameras. The company stopped production in 1967, but the factory still stands in Aston, Birmingham.


The Rapier has a Bakelite body with a flat metal back plate. It was mechanically based on the Coronet Consul but had a 4×4 mask inside, which produced 16 images on a roll of 120 film. The shutter is syncronised for the Coro-Flash unit, which slotted into two holes on the side of the lens plate (visible in the main image above). The camera has two aperture settings, one for black and white film and one for colour film (Black and white film was a lot faster than colour film at the time).


Along with its stand it will be a perfect beauty for your media room corner.
