A well made 1860-75 antique mother of pearl binoculars charm in very nice condition. These binoculars have gold or gold plated accents and each side houses a stanhope. They may have been meant to be worn as a watch-fob. They are smaller in size than most other stanhope binoculars giving the impression of a fine and delicate piece. Both oculars house stanhope lenses and each stanhope bears an inscription of Rene Dagron under it's title. Both are titled in French as follows:
Famille Impériale D'Autriche (Royal Family of Austria)
Le Roi Mongkut du Siam (Mongkut, King of Siam).
Both stanhopes are clear and easy to see. The charm measures 14mm x 16mm. The silvery white mother of pearl has a polished and iridescent look to it. This binocular charm fob pendant also retains the original split ring.
