Opera Glasses suitable for a Fashion Doll with views of the French city of Lyon.

Lord Charles Stanhopes developed in the 18th century a tiny magnifying lens; its invention is that the object to be magnified must be touching the rear surface of the lens. In the first ocular, we can see the Basilica Notre-Dame of Fourvière as well as the statue of king LOUIS XIV, which is always on the place Bellecour in Lyon. In the second ocular, we distinguish diverse small views.

These Opera glasses are 1"(2,5 cm) long and in excellent condition.

French. Circa 1900.
