Binoculars were something very special to me as a child, as they were very carefully handed over by my grandmother ("use two hands!"), their heft and size signifying that something of great importance was about to happen. Holding them up to my face, adjusting them so that each eye could have a magical window into the world, and then searching for that special bird making an appearance, up high in the willow tree - the process just left me breathless and in awe. This pair is a nice modest size, not too heavy to carry around for a day of bird watching or what have you.

The glasses measure about 5 1/4” wide by 4 1/2” tall by 2” deep. Decent working condition, with signs of wear as expected with use, mainly paint loss around the edges. Marked 'Made in France, Allaire, Steeplechase 8 x 26'.
