Could this be an old camera lens

Postby LadZ » Tue Mar 24, 2015 8:52 am

Hello Forum members.

I have this item which came from my grandmothers house many years ago. She had it in use as a magnifying glass and someone had made a crude metal handle for it.
Family legend has it that the lens came from an early camera.

I have looked at many images on the net but nothing matches the size. It fits nicely on a compact disc.
Is it possible that it did come from a camera ?

it is possible. it looks like it could be an element from a vintage photographic enlarger device.
