Reserved for Lourdes - 8th Final Payment: Opera Glasses, MIGNON Abalone Applique Black Enamel Opera Glasses, Vintage Opera Glasses


Shipping to United States: Free

Up for your consideration is a beautiful black enamel and gold trim Opera Glasses with Applique or inlay of hearts, clovers and stars throughout the Opera Glasses. Very unusual and very unique!! And oh so very cute!! The strength of the opera glasses are 2.5x magnification. These opera glasses arms do not articulate so you will not be able to spread them out wider or smaller for the size of your face. But it should not be a problem and where the lenses are set is a common width and will accommodate most people. The fact that the arms do not articulate, it dates these glasses to around the 1940s or so. Most Opera Glasses of this time period and prior years do not have arms that articulate to adjust for the distance between your eyes.

The opera glasses measure 1 ¾ of an inch when fully closed and 2 ¼ of an inch when fully expanded. You can focus these glasses by turning the dial in the center of the mini binoculars. This will expand or contract the binoculars and also sharpen the vision to your desired needs.

These opera glasses come with a nice gold colored case that fits them well and the original box is only in FAIR condition. There are some marks on it from common use, but the little tab that slides into a hoop to close it securely, is broken off. And there is some very minor lifting of threads at the top of the case.

• Condition of the Opera Glasses is Excellent – The abalone appliques are still in great shape and just look so very cute. No issues with the use or viewing. They work great!
• Hallmarks are “MIGNON” and “2.5X” and “MADE IN JAPAN” and “JB19”
