I am offering an original (not a reproduction) large heavy duty wood Swiss Survey Tripod. Based on the design, materials used, and the quality is was likely built during the mid-1900s. The hardwood appears to be oak and the hardware aluminum. It is 40” tall collapsed, 66” extended, has a 5½” table, and weighs 11 pounds. The builder’s tag is still attached to one leg and reads: “Kern SWISS” “Schweiz” “Suisse” “Switzerland” “Suiza”.This tripod appears to be complete and in very good original condition, but is missing the leather strap near the bottom of the legs Considering its advanced age and nice condition this unit has seen very little use and displays well.
