Kodak's strikingly-designed Beau Brownie exists in two versions: The N°2 Beau Brownie (for 120 film); and the slightly larger N°2A Beau Brownie (for 116 film). The two models appeared in October 1930 and disappeared in 1933, although the green and rose models were withdrawn earlier, in 1931. Their front faces are made of two-tone enamel. The geometrical figures are typical style Art Déco. They are due to the designer Walter Dorwin Teague. The possible colors are black, pink, blue, green and tan. The metal body is covered with imitation leather. The only adjustments were I & B shutter speeds and three choices of aperture, given by sliders on the top edge.
