Articulated Folding Brass Binoculars - Antique Brass

Very nice,

Item: 002317



Availability: Sold Out

The prefers-to-remain-anonymous inventor of the Articulated Folding Brass Binocular, renowned in nautical and engineering circles, has privileged us by allowing the sale of his proprietary device to like-minded visionaries.

You will be astounded by both form and function as you peer with anticipation onto the horizon that awaits. Folded flat, this ocular contraption may be stowed in the coat pocket or under a top hat until its service is required. At such time, the engagement of a simple lever releases the lenses into full-view.

These exquisite binoculars are finished in antique brass. Dimensions: 2 in. h x 5 in. w x 4 in. deep with 2X magnification. Imported.

Look the part but would be a little better if they had loops for a strap so they can be hung around the neck.

Looks And Works Great
The Folding Binoculars look and function even better than I expected, as part of my "Steampunk Explorer" costume. (Because they're part of a costume, their look was uppermost in my mind when I purchased them. But I was also pleased to see that they magnify the view exactly as advertised, as well.)

Quite cool looking
These certainly were an interesting addition to my steampunk costume accoutrements. They work well (but see following), and generated many comments. However they were not quite as durable as I expected. First, I had to creatively flex them so that the lenses would align so that it would not produce a double image. Then, I left them on a bed and they fell about two feet to a thickly carpeted floor...and fell apart. A threaded ring in the center above the focusing mechanism popped loose, and the eyepieces fell out along with the focus mechanism. I had a difficult time putting everything back together, and I ended up w. the clamshell bits being a bit looser than they used to be -- I haven't tried tightening them yet. SO, if you get this, just be careful with it...

Great product
I bought the Articulated folding brass binoculars mostly because they were just cool and as a working artist I just cn't pass on something this cool and unusual. Imagine my pleasure when they turned out to be perfect for bird watching in the back yard of my cabin. Sure the power isn't high at only 2x but there clear and bright and the 2x power is perfect for seeing the details on the many species of birds that inhabit the woods around my cabin in Northern Arizona. and they sure look cool on the nightstand, so cool in fact we got the matching monocle for my spouse.

This was my first time to order from Historical Emporium and I was very pleased by the product, how it was packages and how quickly it arrived. We bought this for our teen son who likes steampunk things and he was very happy with it. Thank you!

These are perfect as a carry along. Not as feminine as opera glasses, they would certainly be as unobtrusive at the opera or ballet. Particularly like the opening mechanism...very old school and funky!

Brass is Sass
Love this brassy bit. It is very well made and works quite easily. Will make a lovely set of binoculars for the opera. I am sure they will get quite a few looks. Has good clairity. I also have the folding monocular and loved it so much that I invested in the binoculars. The only thing I dislike about them is that you have to push them closed instead of twisting the lever. It would be nice to close them by twisting the lever. Minor flaw.

Excellent quality product
The binoculars were of excellent quality and ingenious of construction. I would recommend this product to anyone wanting a different touch to their accessory or prop collection.
