Binoculars (3) - Copper, leather, iron and plastic or bakelite

Description
Binoculars (3) - Copper, leather, iron and plastic or bakelite
Unknown - 1920-1949

Three very beautiful and working viewers. Can be focussed by turning the lenses in-out. The material is described, but the green of the one viewer looks like a residue of glue where leather used to be around. Underneath the green, the material is copper.

The largest viewer is 14 cm high at the highest point and 11 cm wide (immediately a reference for the size of the others). The middle one has the very difficult to read engraving of I think G. Läser, and the leather is loose on one side.

Beautiful and working items! With beautiful patina and certainly weathered. Please see the photos, as they are part of the description.
