1915 Busch Opera Glasses Mother of Pearl with Detachable Telescoping Handle and Leather Purse S817
These are a unique pair of opera glasses because they have a detachable handle and because they have the inner barrels lined with Mother of Pearl. Even the little focus screw on the top bridge has a Mother of Pearl cover. All these things distinguish this pair as luxury opera glasses. They were made by Busch which was subsequently taken over by the world famous Zeiss company.
They measure 4 inches by 2 inches telescoping to 2 1/2 inches. The detachable handle extends from 5 inches to 7 inches. The handle is easily attached to the bottom bridge in seconds. It allows you rotate your holding hand during a performance and not miss any of the action on stage.
The opera glasses and handle are in excellent condition. The Mother of Pearl is free from chips or cracks. The lenses are clear and free from scratches, chips or cracks. The focus mechanism is in perfect working order.
The opera glasses comes with a draw string leather purse.
