Pair 19thC Enamel & Gilt Brass Opera Glasses c1890
These exquisite, high grade opera glasses are from c1890, lustrous jewelled enamel panels in vivid green with a real depth in the enamel work. This features a wave pattern running around in bands, some close together others further apart. The panels are decorated with garlands of flowers all surrounded by the pearl effect jewelling. The eye pieces are made from ivory but t are cracks from dryness as you can see on the pictures. Take a look at my pictures these will tell much more than my description. In perfect condition as depicted, no repairs or cracks (only the ivory) and an absolute must for your collection.
