This pair of opera glasses are from the 1960s. It is a one piece unit that folds neatly into the red leather casing. The case is surrounded by chrome. By the way, when closing, just lightly push on the lens area and the glasses fold down into a flat position.
Although known as "opera glasses", there are numerous uses for these such as bird watching, sports events, concerts, and more. Depending on the activity used for, the distance needed will vary so just use the focus wheel on top to bring objects into a clear view.
I do not know who the maker is. There is a groove between the two lenses that appears to have had a sticker or small tab at one time, but it's gone now. That's probably where the maker's name was. I obtained these at an estate sale, so there was no one to ask.
Buyer to pay USPS delivery charges of $4.95. Shipping is from Arizona.
SHIPPING COST INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
