Thank you, Alex, my frame looks identical to the last Duravia on your page, except with a fork like the preceeding frameset. Do you know the dates of the ones in your photos? It appears this could as easily be pre-WWII as post-war.

Not a $7,000+ Caminargent to be sure, but this would seem a quality bike, worth restoring. This would be an educational project for me, as I'm familiar with bikes this old mostly just through Bicycle Quarterly and Jan's books. Currently, my oldest other bike is a 1950 Claud Butler Avant Coureur, so I'm getting a bit beyond my depth here.
