Antique Opera Glasses

Welcome to Second Chance Tuesday! Today I'd like to show a pair of vintage opera glasses with a beautiful bird design. I have pair that I use on display among my antique book shelves.

But recently I discovered just how helpful they can be! Dear Hubby remembered to grab a pair right before we left for the ballet, Swan Lake. We were in the very last row up in the balcony. At first I giggled and made a face... like really? We don't need those! But who was the one asking for them over and over? Me.

You can find them here on Bella Rosa Antiques.

Very nice..I had some in Mother of Pearl...sounds like you enjoyed the Ballet! Have a good week!

Hi Wanda,
I too have a pair in Mother of Pearl... a wonderful gift passed down from my Grandmother and I think it had been gifted to her from someone else. These, I will not sell as long and will probably pass them down to my Dear Bebe!

Thanks for stopping by!

The ballet and vintage opera glasses. I can't think of anything more romantic! You're a lucky girl.

Hi Jillian-love them, and having them at the ballet-how magical (and yes, I would have done the same thing-things like that always come back to bite me!)

Very pretty opera glasses. I wouldn't have thought to bring them to the ballet.
