Good condition, none working, but could be made to look as if its working

General Stainless Steel Professional Bulb Flashgun Information

The old flashgun handle from the 1950s thus became the modern Star Wars Lightsaber.

The long handle was used to house 3 battery cells which ignited fine wires contained in the expendable flash bulb.
The flashbulbs  sometimes exploded when they were ignited, so later ones had a plastic coating to contain the glass.
Exploding flashbulbs could cause serious injuries, which is one of the reasons they are seldom used today.

Wiser photographers used a thick leather glove to insert the bulbs into the flashgun.   This was for a very good reason – the bulb could ignite upon insertion and weld itself to your hand.
Photographers of the era often had holes burnt in their pockets after picking up hot expended flash bulbs.

Camera House Price: £16.00
