Flat Folding Brass Micro Binoculars, 1850's
These mint condition brass micro binoculars folded down flat to fit in a pocket or small saddle bag. Although there are a lot of binoculars around from that time, there are very very we have seen that are in such good condition. A lot of people may call these "opera glasses" and, of course' the makers would sell them to anyone. However, these were an excellent spy and private-eye tool since they are so small and could be hidden so easily because of their size and the fact that they folded down flat. That was quite a marvel for it's time.
