    I had one of those a few years back, but I haven't seen one since so they must be pretty uncommon. How is the resolution? The one I had was a bit soft.

    I didn't put it on my sinar norma
    the diameter of the lens is almost the same as the sinar lens board,

    Last year, there was a European auction (Breker, I think) that sold a whole battery of these late Meyer Petzvals. I think there were 4 - obviously from a Studio that swore to Meyer's look! The production of "ordinary" Petzvals was falling rapidly in the first decade of the 20th century as the numbers of commercial portrait studios was stagnating. It was the period of the soft lenses.

    Yours must be a female lens as you don't mention how much she weighs!

    Breker still seems to attract sellers, in contrast to many other "Known" sites at the moment.

    I wish they had more insightful listings, realistic valuations and starting bid levels, though. At least for large format items.

    That's Germany and most of Europe for you, there are significantly high expectations if not excessive expectations for what LF items can achieve per se, just visit the European Camera Fairs for confirmation
