This little Iris meter is made in 1956 in Karl-Marx-Stadt (present Chemnitz) in former East Germany. It is manufactured by VEB Ger├Ątewerk - one of several companies whose products were labeled under the sate-owned "quasi-brand" RFT (short for 'Broadcast and telecommunications technology').

Iris is very small, made of bakelite, and has a rotating inner wheel instead of more traditional needle. Its quality feels surprisingly good.

Mine is in pretty good condition, and came from Berlin with leather pouch, original box, manual, factory test report and receipt.
