E. Fischel Jr.
E. Fischel Jr. was a Dutch distributor of photographic supplies established in 1868 and operating until about World War II. The company was based in 88 Gelderschekade, with a retailshop at 48 Reguliersbreestraat, both Amsterdam, (Netherlands). While the company primarily sold rebadged cameras from other German and French makers, as well as imported lenses and other products, it also sold imported brass lenses under its own label "Astra". Later it seems to have had links with, or part ownership of, the Dutch lens maker Fabriek van Fotografische Producten.
