Mother of Pearl Opera Glasses - Lemaire Paris - Antique

Sorry, this item has sold.

These antique, French Mother-of-Pearl Opera Glasses were made in the age of the Parisian "Belle Epoque", circa the early 1900s. Their leather case is in good condition with a shiny bright fuchsia, silk lining.

The height of Parisian fashion at the Opera in the Palais Garnier in 1905, these opera glasses are covered with bright, white, iridescent, Mother-of-Pearl. The lenses on these opera glasses are clear and clean. The optics work perfectly, and they are perfectly usable small binoculars. The brass has worn to a warm, rich, patina. The leather case has a working clasp and is free of rips or tears. The small handle is still attached and the original button clasp still works.

Adding to the romance of this gorgeous antique, is the engraving on the front, "L to M, Dec. 25, '05."

The manufacturer, Lamaire, Paris, created the finest French optical devices from 1846 to 1955.

Perfect for the modern concert, opera, or symphony patron, this 113 year-old Christmas gift will bring elegance and charm to anyone's outfit.
