Camera Tripod
Date
1800
Description
Two identical metal tripods with burgundy legs attached with white string. Three adjustable knobs are located at the top of the tripod allowing the metal bar inside to be adjusted maximizing the height. The folding and collapsible legs extend away from the vertical center in three sections to a length of 54.0 cm. A fourth adjustable knob, located at the bottom of the metal bar and meeting the top of the legs, allows the user to extend the legs of the tripod to the desired height. Each of the four knobs has the maker’s mark inscribed and reads: “ACME- LITE-CHICAGO- ” around the circumference. The feet are at a 45 degree angle and have a rubber stopper on the bottom giving the portable three-legged frame greater stability to resist lateral forces. A tripod may have been used for motion and still photography to prevent movement or to help achieve precise framing of an image.
