A fine pair of opera glasses by Colmont of Paris with the original leather case. They are marked for Colmont and also have the Colmont Mark of C in a six pointed star on each Mother of Pearl eyepiece. The glasses are in good condition with lovely aged gilt/brass fittings and rich Mother of Pearl. There is some loss of Mother of Pearl on the turning mechanism; however the rest of the Mother of Pearl is in very good condition. Lovely set ready for the opera or for display.
French, circa 1880
