Ernst Leitz Wetzler Parvo 250 (Parvo II) Slide Projector and Leitz-Hektor f/2.5 10cm Lens w/ Leather & Wood Case - Vintage from the 1940s

Sorry, this item has sold.

Vintage Ernst Leitz Wetzler Parvo 250 (Parvo II)
Slide Projector and Leitz-Hektor f/2.5 10cm Lens
with Leather & Wood Case.
Genuine Leitz lens cap included.
Original instructions are in German.

This classic slide projector was made in Germany in
the late 1940s. The projector was purchased new
in Germany by a US Army officer who was stationed
there shortly after the war. The Parvo II was a first-year
model and was only made this one year before the
next model came out with significant changes. This
model is the more desirable one due to its construction.
The condenser lenses are made by Leitz as is the super
sharp Leitz-Hektor f/2.5 100mm projection lens.

Only one previous owner.
Smoke and pet-free home.

***The projector will need a new electric cord installed
as the original cord was brittle and no longer safe to use.
I am including the original cord and plug with the set.

I've carefully cleaned each removable lens element in the projector
and inspected each item. The projection lens looks
sharp with just a few dirt specs seen inside.

The original leather and wood carry case is in excellent
condition with functioning locks with two keys. It's
still very solid and there are no bad or not-so-funny smells.

You will receive everything that's pictured in this listing.
I believe that once a new cord is sourced and installed
the projector will work just fine.
The original European plug is also included (not pictured).

I mail daily and since this item is rather heavy it will
be carefully packaged for mailing.
It will be about 14 pounds boxed for mailing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does your shop offer combined shipping?

Yes, just let us know and we'll work something out. No need to pay for shipping more than once.

Does your shop accept returns?

Yes, but with some exceptions. No returns on custom-made items. Part two - we will gladly accept a return within 14 days as long as it is returned to us in the same condition as when we sent it to you. Specifically, if an item is new and unused and in its original box and packaging it must be returned in an unused and unopened condition. Vintage and classic cameras, lenses, and certain pieces of vintage photogear carry no warranties or guarantees. By their very nature, older cameras are just that, old, and their electronics, levers, knobs, buttons, and dials can fail at any time. Let us know if you are returning something, maybe we can reach an agreement short of a full return. Part three - you will always pay for return shipping. Thanks

Will my purchase arrive well packaged?

Always! Carol and I take great care (and pride) in packaging your purchase. We are mindful of being "green" but often times green doesn't protect your package properly. We have been shipping items safely since 2003. We must say, however, that we are not responsible for mishandling by the carrier(s) or loss of an item. Most items and especially valuable items will always have insurance added.

How can I contact your shop?

We are on Etsy almost every day and the best way to get our attention is by starting an Etsy convo. We'll answer you quickly. We're generally in the shop until 11 PM EST.

Does your shop ever do custom orders?

Yes, we do. Just let us know what you want or are looking for and we'll see if we can make it happen.

Does your shop accept a best offer?

We think we have everything priced properly but we are here to make a sale and keep our customers happy. Let us know if you want to make an offer on something. I'm sure we will find a way to reach an accord.
