Ica?, postcard format plate camera c1925

Another one of Mum's discoveries! 1996. As yet not formally identified, it is devoid of markings, bar a stamping on the base and the lens, which is of a type I have seen attributed to Hutig - a German company which merged with a number of others in 1909. This doesn't tally with the cast aluminium lens board supports, which started to appear around the 20's. Since the merged companies of which Hutig was one, became Known as Ica, I've decided to list it as such provisionally. If anyone wants to put me straight on this - I'd be delighted to hear from you. When received it was rather tatty and went through a deep clean, overhaul and restoration process. However due to the lack of plate carriers, which have an unusually thin rail, it awaits its first post restoration photographic outing.
