Collections Highlights – Opera Glasses

Opera Glasses

These opera glasses were used for easily viewing things from afar, most commonly used in opera houses for following the actions onstage from a distance. This beautiful pair is made from ivory, with mother-of-pearl and abalone inlay on its brass frame. Using them would give anyone a sense of elegance and opulance.

Donated by Mrs. Arnold J. Jensen
