THE WELLER WING SHUTTER
Rochester Optical Company, Rochester, New York 1896 - 1902
Touted by Rochester Optical as one of the best shutters in the market for either the amateur or professional photographer, the Weller Wing Shutter was beautifully designed, simple in construction and capable of time and instantaneous work. It was intended to mount on the front of a lens barrel od lens shade. The example shown here, missing its mounting collar, measures 6-3/8" wide by 6-3/16" in height including the pneumatic nipple.
The Weller is presumed to have been manufactured by Rochester Optical Company, having been carried almost exclusively by them.
Introduced in 1896, the Weller would continue to be offered by Rochester Optical Company in their catalogues through 1902.
