Very rare set from the 1920s by Dolland, a famous English brand. Dolland became Dolland & Aitchison in 1927 so this set pre-dates 1927.
They are very similar in appearance to the "Army" model first released by Dolland in 1915 (see last image), and could indeed be this model.
Leather case lid has details of maker. Reads "Dolland London, established 1750".
It is very unusual to find a working set with their original case. I have contacted the British Optical Association Museum, who have confirmed that they date from before 1927.
