Description Specific

Polaroid is an American company that is a brand licensor and marketer of its portfolio of consumer electronics founded in 1937 by Edwin H. Land who ran the company until 1981. When the original Polaroid Corporation was declared bankrupt in 2001, its brand and assets were sold off.

The Polaroid P 600 camera in Silver/Dark Blue is a classic 90’s instant camera. It folds open to reveal the fixed focus lens, a built in flash and the close up setting on the left of the lens. There were many other versions, with and without ‘Kenneth Cole – Reaction’ logo, black/cyan, silver/black, with and without ‘Coca Cola’ and ‘Goldschlager’ logos.

This one is mounted on a stylish IKEA LAUTERS table lamp base with dimmer switch. (Dimmer function will only work if you use a dimmable bulb). The cloth cable and solid wood give an honest, retro feel. The legs have been sprayed to match the colour in the camera.
