GO HERE FOR MORE FRESNEL LENSES. In this case is a complete staff of durm lens by Barbier Benard Turenne (signed).
Made in Paris, France, during 1920s. There are 5 panels to make a perfect circle of 360 degrees, but sides did not match.
One of them is intact. Three of them are in very good condition, with a really few small blemishes.
And the last panel has 3 missing rings (see three last pictures). I removed all lens for security reasons in the last panel with missing rings, so you will see brass frame empty. But in the three last pictures i show all lenses belonged to this empty frame. I show central drum lens, and nine rings (three rings are missing, because each panel has 12 rings). Height of set is 69 centimeters.
Each panel weights more or less 70 lbs. So complete set weight more than 350 lbs. Instrument will be sent professionally protected (to avoid any damage).All defects not mentioned but visible in the pictures will be considered as described. If you have any question, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your visit.
