Eliot Soffes was an architect, devoted husband and father, and an avid collector of art deco ware and vintage cameras.  We are pleased to share his collection with you.  His widow is selling selected items from his estate.  We are offering the lots in groups, at a 15% discount off the high price for the items given in the camera price guide.  If you are interested in an individual item please contact us.

PLEASE NOTE:  This web page is for historical information only.  The owner has withdrawn the collection from active sales.

 Make an Offer  Prices are taken from McKeown's Price Guide to Antique and Classic Cameras, 11th Edition.  As with most collectibles, the price can vary greatly.  Auction prices can be well above this range, and dealers will frequently charge more for an uncommon item, or one in very good condition.  Prices that dealers offer for cameras are often much lower.
