The Leica & Classic Camera Auction: A Single-Owner Collection of Rare & Important Cameras

The Leica & Classic Camera Auction: A Single-Owner Collection of Rare & Important Cameras

Auction ended Friday, 24 March 2017

McTear’s Auctioneers is proud to offer a large single-vendor collection of cameras to the open market for the first time. Owned by photographer and collector, Ian MacDonald, the collection is unique for the quantity and excellent condition of cameras offered, mostly manufactured by Leica.

Mr MacDonald’s collection was gathered over three generations and comprises over 100 lots, with Leica examples from the early 20th century to the modern day. The highlight of the auction is lot 70, a Leica 1 camera which was reputedly owned by the world-famous aviator Amelia Earhart, and gifted to the vendor’s grandfather, William MacDonald in 1933. Mr MacDonald Senior had always admired the camera, and as he worked for Ms Earhart and became friendly with the family, he said that he liked the camera. Ms Earhart reputedly did not like the Leica 1 because she found the film difficult to load, and gave him the camera there and then, signing a card from her own stock at the same time. Estimated at £10000-15000, the lucky purchaser of this lot will not only be the owner of an early Leica model but also a priceless piece of history.

Managing Director of McTear’s Brian Clements has said ‘I hope that buyers and collectors will enjoy the volume and range of cameras on view. I am delighted that Mr MacDonald has chosen McTear’s as the venue to offer the cameras, and we have high hopes for some strong competition on the auction day.’
