seller noteAntique French Victorian Folding Eyeglasses & Ear Horn Hearing Trumpet, Faux-Tortoise Celluloid Plastic w/ Original Paris Box. NB We have had many examples of antique eyeglasses over the years, but this is the first pair that we have had in which the handle is actually an Ear Horn, or a Hearing Trumpet. Measuring 11.5 in long overall with a 5in long pair of Opera Lorgnettes, this 19th century French Victorian Opera Glasses & Hearing Trumpet is made from early Celluloid Plastic, swirled to look like Tortoise. The condition is perfect, with no problems or any repairs and it comes in its original 12 by 2.5in cardboard box from, - Appareils Acoustiques Etablissments Franck-Valery - in Paris. There is some surface and edge wear to this box, but it is in overall very good, strong condition.
commentGlad I didn't pay this same amount for a wormy one a while back !
