DURONI & MURER (Italy f. 1860 / act: Milan & Paris)

Duroni & Murer Alessandro Duroni (1807-1870) was a pioneer in photographic equipment in Italy and founded his company in Milan in 1886. In 1892, Theodoro Murer joined Duroni's firm and is credited with the design of the many camera models including the simple detective cameras which were soon to be successfully marketed throughout Europe and the USA. In Europe, Murer's cameras were also sold under the name Salex in England, whereas in Sweden they were sold by Hasselblad, and in France as the Gaumont. Before the firm ceased operations in 1927, Murer's designs appeared in more than 150 models and variants.
