Exquisite pair of brass French Opera Glasses with Mother-of-Pearl inlay marked LeMaire, Paris in original Leather Case with Brass Honey Bee closure. Rare to find these antique pieces in such great condition WITH their original case!

These solid brass, French-made opera glasses are in fabulous condition! They have been obviously very well cared for by their owners since the late 1800 - early 1900's when they were made in Paris.

Gorgeous mother-of-pearl faceted inlay perfectly surrounds the ocular pieces and is flawless. Brass bridge between lenses has some scratching. Lenses have no visible scratches and the pair is completely functional! Marked Lemaire, Paris.

Soft leather or lambskin fitted case has hallmark "honeybee" brass closure and opens on two tiny hinges. Case seam has pulled apart on side and part of bottom and can be glued or sewn if desired. Case is lined in red satin and marked on lid: J.S. Mac Donald Importer, Baltimore.

An elegant accessory for plays, concerts, sporting events. Or fabulous interior decor accent for library, bedroom or living area.
