This is a wonderful, beautiful camera made from rich Honduran Mahogany.
The doors are made from at least eleven separate pieces of wood. The
door panels were built by the finest wood craftsmen. The look is of
fine, quality cabinetry. The camera was made in the United States
but the movement was licensed from a company in Prestwich, England.
Except for Tropical models, none of the cameras made in England could
travel the entire Unites States, from Florida to Nevada, and not warp
or crack. This Bass camera is designed to be a truly professional
camera and take large changes in temperatures and humidity.
