A superior quality pair of opera glasses by Colmont of Paris. They are signed Colmont and they also have the Colmont Mark of C in a six pointed star.
They measure 4 inches by 2 1/2 inches telescoping to 3 inches. These opera glasses are unique for that period because they have eye width adjustment. This is important if you want to share them with your partner who may have wider eyes than you. Eye width is measured from the centre of both pupils. This pair of opera glasses can adjust from an eye width of 3 inches to 2 1/4 inches.
The opera glasses are in excellent condition. Colmont were makers of fashion accessories in Paris in the second half of the nineteenth century. They made luxury items. The Mother of Pearl does not have any splits, cracks or chips. The lenses are clear and free from chips, cracks or scratches. The focus mechanism is in perfect working order and the eye width adjustment is easily adjusted.
The opera glasses come with an original leather case which shows that the opera glasses were made by Colmont for H.Cerf Optician on the Rue De La Madelene, Bruxelles.
The eye width adjustment make these a great family investment. They are fabulous for a display and are better than any opera glasses being made today if you want to see what is happening on stage at your next night out.
