This listing is for a vintage Ries Camera Co, 1314 Beachwood Dr. Hollywood California tripod with model G Tilt head. This is from a family member that was a career professional photographer. The tripod is in very good condition based on the age but does have signs of rust in locations and the wood legs have lost their finish.
This would be a great project for someone who would want to do some minor restoration. These original Ries Tripods are a interesting piece of history as the Ries brothers played a role in Hollywood's film industry. The complete set weighs 6 lbs 2 oz and the legs measure 33 retracted to the flat plate of the tilt head. The legs extensions can add another 26 of rise when extended to the tightening nut.
The head has a center knob which when loosed allows the head to rotate 360 degrees and the tilt arm allows the head to tilt and all work fine.
