This is an exquisite pair of Lemaire FI Opera Glasses with Outstanding Mother of Pearl in Near Mint Condition. The lenses are clear and clean edge to edge. The mechanicals work smoothly without a hitch. The Mother of Pearl is perfectly matched from the barrels, to the extension tubes, to the eyepieces. There is age related and expected minor wear to the polished brass frames; noticably on the bottom frame as can be seen in photo #5. Other than that, this pair of opera glasses is absolutely pristine. In addition to being hallmarked on each MOP eyepiece "LEMAIRE FI - PARIS", the underside of the middle frame is metal stamped "63" on the left and "29" on the right side in addition to the "bee" hallmark logo. This is one of the finest examples of Lemaire that I've ever seen. The pair measures 4 inches across by 2 1/4 inches high retracted and 3 1/4 inches extended. The barrel diameter maximum is 1 1/5 inches.

This stunning pair of opera glasses also includes a beautiful hand-stitched tapestry pouch for protection and transport of these fine optical instruments.
