This is an attractive pair of mother of pearl and brass ormolu French opera glasses, one can see on the rim of the eyepieces Iris Paris, they were made in the 1890's.
The focus wheel is also mother of pearl which works perfectly smooth and has a good magnification.
No cracks or splits, the brass ormolu is slightly rubbed on the frame where the glasses extend out for magnification, which is expected as these glasses would have been taken and used regularly at the Paris Opera House.
The craftsmanship is superb.
