|A lovely little gem, indeed!
And the fact that you still have some sealed 6x9 glass plates makes it really exciting to play with it. Ages ago I played with some 4x5 glass plates, but I ended up developing them in a tray, like the photographic paper, in red light (they were orthochromatic).
Some time ago I had a 6x9 Bergheil, but it was a little different than yours. Mine had different horizontal and vertical front movements, each with its adjustment knob. Yours looks like having 2 vertical adjustment knobs, one on top of the other. How do they work?
Looking closer I can see that yours have a horizontal adjustment lever, as well.
Are the 2 vertical adjustment knobs just a design element?
