Antique Guilloche Opera Glasses 1800s Theater Glasses Rare Blue Enamel Binoculars
A beautiful and very rare pair of antique 1800's cobalt blue guilloche enamel and brass opera or theater glasses.
This pair had a retractable handle at one time. The swivel handle shaft is still there, so a brass handle could be easily be added. The beautiful blue guilloche is stunning, and the action on the glasses is very smooth. They function perfectly and the lenses are clear, with no damage.
The brass does have some dark areas on the base portion of the bridge as well as on the larger base eye pieces. They measure approximately 4 inches across the bottom and are 3 inches in height when fully extended.
They come in a lovely handmade heavy upholstery cloth pouch for their protection. Visit our shop to find a wonderful selection of antique and vintage binoculars and opera glasses.
