A small pair of black lacquered brass Binoculars with leather grips by Chevalier, Paris.

This type of binocular are often called Long Johns and are associated with naval use, perhaps because they are essentially a twin pair of telescopes. This pair, however, are very unusual for being particularly small in size, easily fitting into a pocket. It is likely that they have 6 lenses in each tube and give a very clear image.

Chevalier were exceptional Parisian opticians and this pair of binoculars stand out for their quality and size. Circa 1900.

The retracted size is given.
