The Bolsey Explorer is a name variant of the Braun Gloriette, sold by Bolsey around 1955. It is a simple 35mm viewfinder camera, with lever advance, a Steinheil Cassar 45/2.8 lens, a Vero synchronized shutter from 1/25 to 1/200 and a cold shoe. The back is hinged, stamped Made in Germany in the leatherette.

It exists both in black (seen in an eBay auction) or in clear leatherette.
