Celluloid was invented in the mid nineteenth century. It quickly became a fashionable decorative material. This beautiful pair of opera glasses from 1880 are an early example of the decorative use of colored celluloid.

They are 4 inches by 2 1/2 inches telescoping to 3 1/2 inches.

This pair of opera glasses are rare. They are in working order. The lenses are clear and have no chips or cracks. The focus mechanism works well. The celluloid is free from chips or cracks or splits.

They must have made a spectacular show on their first night at the opera amid all that Victorian drabness.
