found: a real treasure

i indulged my hankering for poking around a flea market today. there's one every weekend over across the fjord and although it's horribly smoky in there from all of the smokers, i braved it today. and i'm happy i did, because i found this beauty:

the lens says "Jos. Schneider & Co. Kreuznach No. 275350 Xenar :4,5 F-19,5cm"
the body says "Hüttig A.G. Dresden, Modell 1907."
i don't know anything about it.
i just thought it was beautiful.
i am going to try to take pix through the viewfinder with my D60 and macro lens
if any of you know more about these cameras than i do, please share!!
