DESCRIPTION:

Here is an interesting pair of miniature opera glasses. They have an Art Deco look but probably date from the mid 20th century.

Folded flat they can easily fit into a purse for use at the opera or theatre.

They are constructed from silver tone metal and design to open and close into a flat rectangle. The outer case is inlaid with a geometric design in mother of pearl and abalone shell. The optics is clean and scratches free with good, smooth, sharp focussing. The metalwork is a little scuffed in places, but generally retains its original finish.

The optics is in good order and could be used at the opera, etc. The focus function works perfectly, all original parts intact.
