FRENCH MOTHER OF PEARL OPERA GLASSES
Age. More than 80 years old
Composition. See below
Size. 2 ¼” high x 4” wide
Comments. Stamped” Iris Paris” on one of the eyepieces these opera glasses have a brass body that is covered in mother of pearl panels. They expand out to 2 ¾" deep and still deliver a clear image. They are well made and heavy for their size. This item is in good shape with no apparent breaks having normal use wear, has some soiling and is missing one of the mother of pearl rings around one of the eyepieces as seen in our photo. Give them a cleaning and you’ll have a retro way to watch the fat lady sing at your next opera. Even the inner tubes are covered with mother of pearl panels, a feature that we have not seen in many of this type of item.

To save our bidders time, our system is desgined to accept "maximum bids."
A "maximum bid" is the highest bid you are willing to place on an item.
Our system will automatically bid for you, in the required increments, up to your "maximum bid."
The initial bid placed for you will be only as high as required to outbid any current bidders should your "maximum bid" be highest.
This means that you will always pay the minimum price required to "win" an item, and not necessarily your "maximum bid"
**NOTE: In the event that your maximum bid ties a previously left maximum bid, the previously left maximum bid will prevail.
**If you are the current High Bidder, entering another "Maximum Bid" will simply adjust your current "Maximum Bid" to the new amount providing it is higher than the "Current Bid". You are allowed to increase or decrease your "Maximum Bid"
