French Antique Opera Glasses.

  • NZ$21500

Very beautiful opera glasses, gilded brass with mother-of-pearl eye pieces and enamelled bases. The enamel work is lovely - flowers and garlands surrounded by applied white dots with gold outlines. They work very well. The gilding to the brass has dulled with age, but apart from that, they are in excellent condition. They come with a case, but the lid has become detached, and the clasp doesn’t function. These are the nicest set of opera glasses I have had - most are either black leather, or ivory mounted or mother of pearl.  They would date from late 1800s to early 1900s, and are French in origin. Measurements: 10.25 cm wide, 8 cm high when fully extended, and 6 cm high when not extended.
