1800s LeMaire Fi Mother Of Pearl Opera Glasses Antique Paris Theater Glasses 1920s Morie Tapestry Box Purse
This is a stunning pair of antique Lemaire Fi Paris 1800's mother of pearl opera or theater glasses that come in a gorgeous moiré tapestry box purse.
The glasses measure 2 1/4 inches in height when closed and almost 3 inches high when fully extended, and are a bit over 3 3/4 inches across the base of the lenses. They come in a black leather case and inside the lovely box purse. The purse measures approximately 5 1/2 across by 4 deep and 4 inches in height.
The glasses are in perfect working condition, with no damage to the lenses, or mother of pearl. They are also engraved in script with the original owners initials "DMR" on the base of the bridge.
They are hallmarked on one eye piece with Lemaire Fi Paris, as well as J.C Freeman & Co. Worcester. The coloration of the mother of pearl is much more attractive and colorful than our photos show.
The purse is in excellent condition, with only ever so slight signs of age. The interior is also in great condition. The lid has a large glass mirror that is in great useable condition.
A beautiful pair of opera glasses to add to your vignette, or for use.
