Leica 180-degree Flash Bracket CTOOM/15545

CTOOM/15545 (19531964) describes an adjustable bracket that is designed to be fitted to the base of a camera, allowing the flash gun to be positioned at any angle through 180 degrees. Initially, this accessory was manufactured using white plastic; however, by the mid-1950s, it was being produced using black painted metal.

I must say, I am impressed with the German design. It is both simple and effective, allowing for a 180-degree adjustment of the flash position. The quality of German craftsmanship is also remarkable, as the texture is solid and gives a sense of sophistication when held. It makes for a perfect paperweight while reading. However, it is important to note that it is not just a mere decoration, as it is fully functional.
