SOLD: The Kodak Junior Six-16, Series II folding camera, made from 1937 to 1940, was a favorite take-along back in the day. But as cool as it looks, it can’t hold a candle to modern photography equipment and as expected, it is no longer used to take pictures. With a little creativity, however, I found it can be upcycled and that’s exactly what I did!
I’ve paired the camera with a reclaimed wood frame to be used as a base and I’ve taken advantage of the camera’s three distinct hiding places to give this collectible a brand new purpose. Now, in addition to being a great vintage piece, this 80+ year-old camera is also a stash box. Display it on a table or shelf and all the while use it for safekeeping your treasures. This is original vintage with a modern use and it’s the best of both worlds!
The interior of the camera is easily accessed and once inside, you’ll find that I’ve added two screw-capped tubes that fit within the film spool holders where small items (like extra cash) can be stashed. I’ve also included a drawstring bag for your larger treasures that can be placed within the main cavity of the box.
The camera is in excellent condition with only minor wear and use marks.
