The Cocarette Camera was originally made by Contess-Nettle in circa 1924. Contessa had a full line of Cocarette models. Ziess Ikon continued to sell the cocarette with model no.s 207, 209, 514/2, 517/2, and 519/2 in circa 1927. The camera body was made of one-piece light metal and covered in leatherette. One of the key features was the film loading mechanism. It was removed from the side and held the film flat during loading. Various lens and shutter combinations were used over the years. Lenses included Frontar, Periskop, Novar, Dominar and Tessar and accompanying shutters included Derval, Klio and compur dial.
