A Pair of Vintage Hilger Watts Tripods –Great Vintage combination of Wood and Metal
We have a nice matching pair of tripods / theodolite stands from a quality maker which look great whether you use them for hats, lamps or whatever. They are in a good overall condition with the usual signs of outside usage - take a look at the pictures and judge for yourselves.
I would assume they are around late 40s early 50’s by the look and feel of the stands. One of the leather buckles is missing and at present a small piece of timber is acting as clamp on one of legs replacing a missing screw – however it seems fine and would not be difficult to remedy if you wish.
They look great and would make a wonderful addition to an apartment or home. They will extend, we have them set at a height of 106cm to give you an idea.
