This is a STUNNING pair of opera glasses that we think were made for a child. The span between lens is very small making it difficult for an adult to look through. It dates to around late 1800's. The rich colors of the shell is extraordinary. The eyepieces and focus wheel are perfect and move smoothly. Free from cracks or splits, and all the joints are flawless. The brass is slightly worn on the frame and where the glasses extend out for magnification. The craftsmanship is superb and the optic remarkably still clear and sharp!!
Measures: 1 ½" L not extend ~ 1 7/8" L extended x 3 3/8" W x 1" H
