Vintage, all-brass telescope binoculars, also refered to as “military glasses” and “field glasses”. These binoculars are in the style of mid-nineteenth century binoculars, used throughout the civil war. They are based on the Galilean telescope which is a simple telescope with a convex lens as the objective lens and a concave lens as the ocular. They can lengthen to 9 1/2 inches and compress to 7 3/4 inches. No makers name or mark . These binoculars are in "like new" condition with only a ittle surface oxidation and the optics are perfectly clear.
