Petite “Green” – 3/99

Posted on

United States 1929 – Folding – 127 film – Rare.

The Kodak Petite is an exquisitely colored version of Kodak’s classic Vest Pocket (mod B) camera. Its size and comfort of use turned this camera into a trendy accessory, and the various available colors (blue, green, lavender & pink) turned it into a fashionable item. Key to the success of the Petite was its “autographic” capability that let the user write a few words directly on the film through a small opening on the back. The text would appear when the film is developed.
