DEBRIE Pied Chariot

Click to see large picture DEBRIE Pied Chariot
Period:   from the end of 1940's to the full 1960's
Type:   Pedestals & Dollies
Quantity:   3 specimens available

This pedestal is of French film origin and was used throughout the 1950s in studios by BBC Television (Lime Grove) and ITV companies. During that period there was nothing better available, at least in Europe. The Debrie had an advantage over the US Houston Fearless tv studio type pedestals inasmuch that it could crank quite low to the floor and was much lighter. This easily steered pedestal (which sometimes had three stabilising struts attached) has three linked wheels and is fully mechanical. Maximum height,6ft. Larger image shows the pedestal 'on set'
