For the photog who has secrets…
Don’t judge a book by its cover, and don’t be fooled into thinking you’re getting a working piece of vintage darkroom equipment. Although this is an authentic Omega B-22 Condenser Head from a 1960’s enlarger, I have repurposed it to hold your most secret stuff (like jewelry, cash, etc.) OR your favorite botanicals OR your fragrance sticks OR maybe even a couple of incense sticks.
This is great gift for a professional photographer to use in the studio or office; for the photography hobbyist; for the person who loves the look of vintage industrial decor; and the connoisseur of one-of-a-kind functional art — because everyone has special secrets!
Looking absolutely normal on the outside, the interior of the piece has been deconstructed and redesigned to hold your treasures. Simply twist the two locking knobs to lift off the top half of the piece and uncover two new, plastic storage containers. In addition, you’ll find two small storage areas: one accessed by twisting off the red screws; and one that will require a small screwdriver to reveal a mini screw top container. The smokestack-style top is also attached with screws and can be removed so botanicals or sticks can come through the top. See photos.
The Condenser Head is in good vintage condition with just the right amount of wear marks to verify a history. The piece measures approx. 6″ across at the widest point and 9″ high.
To see how this piece was attached to the enlarger, you’ll find a 1970 print ad for the Omega B-22 Enlarger click here.
