This lovely old tripod was manufactured by Otto Engineering in "Inglewood, CAL". It looks as if it was created for civil engineering, but I was able to mount a camera, without adapters.
If I had room (and I do not), I would keep this, restore it and then put it on display in my studio. Although it is beautiful as is, it really requires a complete restoration, including refinishing the wooden pieces and refinishing the metal pieces.Recommended for folks who really enjoy antique technical equipment.
