A superb pair of Victorian opera glasses. They are constructed from brass with pale mauve mother of pearl panels on the outer barrels. Mother-of-Pearl is in shaped sections around the barrels of the glasses. They have a double extension handle again with mother of pearl panels. All original parts intact.

The focus wheel in the centre opens the glasses to full length to adjust focus.
