Nice Find: Lunds Photograph Forceps

12237960472?profile=RESIZE_400xHave just found a "Lunds Photographic Forceps" at a Camera Fair. The seller kept on telling people it was a "Glass Plate Lifter". I knew full well that it was USD for putting CDV's (and other sizes) in or out of Photographic albums. I hear that one went to auctions in London some time ago, though when and how much I don't know.

My question is, anyone else have them.? how common are they.?

  • A friend of mine had several pairs.  Ever since seeing them (years ago!) I've hunted for a pair everywhere but to no avail.  Glad you found one.  I think they are rare.  Congrats!  Paula Fleming
