Unusual Aluminium & Brass Enamel Opera Glasses Binocular Glass Antique No Res For Sale

This unusual pair of opera glasses measure 104mm (4'') across x 85mm (3.5'') extended. They are fabricated from an aluminium body with brass and mother of pearl mounts and richly enamelled green and gold barrels with birds and grapes. They are very well made and I would date them to around 1900 when aluminium was still a novelty light weight material. They are in full working order and come with their original leather case, there is a little corrosion to the central stem (photo8) and under certain lights it is just possible to see fine cracks around the tops of the enamel which I have just about caught in a couple of photos but they are hard to see with the naked eye. A fine unusual pair of probably French antique opera glasses.
International buyers are always welcome to this sale. F.M.O.C. Postage outside the United Kingdom is at cost please contact me for a quote. Due to the recent large increase in UK postage rates I am happy for international buyers to arrange their own collection and domestic buyers to collect in person. Most international postage rates are listed as NOT signed for and NOT insured so if you require either please let me know and I will add it to your invoice. Sadly due to Italy terrible postage system I will always add £5.15 to the postage charge for signed for to ensure it reaches the customer. If the item is listed as " Signed for " on the postage then obviously it is already included. If you have any questions please do contact me. All our items are extremely well packed to save them from damage in transit. If you are not happy with this article based on the information I have provided I will always happily refund minus the cost of any postage. All purchases must be piad for within 3 days of the end of the sale unless agreed otherwise.
