When Aluminium was invented in the mid nineteenth century it was a precious metal and used to decorate the most expensive items. The aluminium in the barrels of this pair of opera glasses are decorated with fine chased work just as good as chased silver of that era.
The opera glasses are 4 inches by 2 1/2 inches telescoping to 3 inches. The magnification is X3.
The opera glasses are in excellent condition. The eye pieces are lined with Mother of Pearl. The lenses are in perfect condition. The focus and zoom mechanism are in very good working order.
Apart from the decorative beauty of the chased aluminium, the light weight of aluminium make these an excellent accessory for a long show. It takes very little effort to hold them up to your eyes for long periods.
