Japanese Bekko Tortoise Shell Lorgnette Opera Glasses
Rare Vintage Japanese Bekko ( tortoise shell ) lorgnette with long handle dated 1930 to 1940s ( Early Showa ). It is was made for export to the western world, so it looks like antique French folding opera glasses . The folding hinge works well and the glasses stay in place when opened. It was stored without being used for a long time at the store, so there are very small holes from insect on the edges and back, and the loop on the bottom, but considering its age, it is in a great condition. 9.75 L x 1.125 widest x 0.2" D ( 24.8 cm L x 2.9 cm W x 0.5 cm D ) * There are no glasses in the frame.
