99 cent start with !Description: This gorgeous set of opera glasses dates from the late 1800's and comes with its original case. The pistons work smoothly to raise and lower the lenses when the wheel is turned to adjust the focus. They are signed on top of the eyepieces,"Lemaire, Paris." The number 63 is inscribed underneath one of the brass center rails. They stand a little less than 3" high when fully extended and 2 3/16" high when retracted. The glass lenses are in good shape, and the focus works fine. Flaws: There are some hairline cracks in the enameling, mostly in one area. They don't detract much at all because they almost look like they are part of the design, but they need to be mentioned and pointed out for sake of accuracy (Please enlarge the last image where they are pointed out in magnified form). Also, some of the tiny white beads (pearls?) are missing. Even though some of the beads are gone, there is a small gold spot the same size of the bead that is left in its place, so the design is still continuous despite some of the beads/pearls missing (View this also in the last image). The carrying case is worn and rough, inside and out, but it still serves its purpose of protecting this lovely set. The push button latch on the case works fine.

These opera glasses have not been cleaned, polished, or altered. They are estate fresh. Even with the minor flaws that I described above, they are one of the prettiest sets I've ever seen. Please take time to enlarge all the images to fully appreciate how beautiful this set really is. Thanks for looking and good luck offerding!

If by any chance I've inadvertently misrepresented this piece in any way, it can be returned for a full refund including return shipping charges, so please offer with confidence.
