All the lenses are good with no damage , some dust and dirt inside ,  although a good clear image is still obtainable.The leather and satin silk case is fair with typical wear , dirt and patina commensurate with great age. The leather ends have come unstitched and one back hinge has a pin missing , which would be very easy to resolve. The case has kept the glasses in good order to date.Lovely pair of “genuine” antique mother-of-pearl Opera Glasses / BinocularsMeasuring approximately …….Binoculars Extended……………..105mm (4 1/8in) wide .x. 85mm (3 5/16in).Binoculars Retracted…………….105mm (4 1/8in) wide .x. 67mm (2 7/16in).Weighing approximately……….269gms (UNPACKED).
