Presenting a spectacular pair of opera glasses, dating to the late 19th Century. They have the manufacturer's name L.A. REINE and PARIS written on the mother of pearl trim around the eye pieces.
The glasses have a push in extended handle and all the mechanics are working properly. The enamel work is just fabulous with the cream white background making a beautiful canvas for the pinks, blues and gold colors found throughout the design. The handle is just exquisite with its gold dots and central floral bouquet.
The glasses measure 4" across and are 1 3/4" high. The retractable handle is 4 3/8" long. I see no issues with the glasses. There are no cracks or missing dots. Even the brass trim has remained fairly shiny. The manufacturer's name on the trim is slightly faded.
It is a very useful object, especially for those operas , plays or concerts. Just remove from your purse and see the many eyes on you, or keep them at home for display. A fabulous example of French 19th Century design.
