Antique LeMaire Fi Paris Opera Glasses 1800s Mother Of Pearl Binoculars Theater Glasses 1920s GrosGrain Box Purse
This is a beautiful pair of antique LeMaire Fi Paris 1800's mother of pearl opera or theater glasses in wonderful condition. They come in a lovely pouch and attractive grosgrain brown 1920's box purse.
The opera glasses measure 2 1/8 inches in height when closed and 2 3/4 inches high when fully extended, and are 3 5/8 inches across the base of the lenses. The purse measures 6 inches by 4 inches by 2 1/2 inches in height. The detachable handle has a 7 inch drop from the top of the purse. The cloth pouch is a pretty pattern beige heavy fabric handmade pouch.
The glasses are in perfect working condition. Even the shafts have gorgeous mother of pearl on them. The only issue we could find was one tiny pencil point ding to the outside edge of one of the large lenses and some slight tarnish. They have a perfectly smooth action; with no damage to the lenses or the pretty mother of pearl. They are hallmarked on the eye pieces with LeMaire Fi Paris, and The Hyman Berg & Co. Chicago. The purse has no hallmarks. It's in wonderful condition both inside and out. It has an additional pocket inside for cash, credit cards or other small essentials.
A beautiful pair of opera glasses and charming purse to add to your vignette, or perfect for use.
