Opera Glasses c. 1890s Victorian Opera Glasses, Field Glasses, Binoculars, Spares or Repairs
A lovely pair of brass opera glasses with finely ribbed barrels making them particularly attractive. Late 19th Century.
They measure 4.5" x 3.5" and are in good order. All lenses are clear and show no signs of cracking.
The only down side is the screw is missing from the centre mechanism. The optics are clear and they are still functional as is, but the eyepieces slide in and out freely instead of via the screw mechanism.
There is the usual loss of enamel around the eyepieces and ends, and maybe the barrels were enamelled at one point but they certainly look good without.
They would be enhanced by extensive cleaning and removal of residual polish.
Unfortunately, the case no longer accompanies these glasses.

Overseas orders may on occasion take up to 6 weeks to arrive, particularly in the USA due to recent increased security measures. I only use a tracking service for orders over $55, please feel free to ask me for it if you need it, but please be aware that this will incur additional postage costs. Some countries are not required to scan the barcodes so 50% of the time they will only show that they have arrived in the country and no more so please bear this in mind.
