Your opera glasses are Austrian, from Vienna, made between 1860-1880. They are superb quality opera glasses. Some can fetch substantial amount, over £1000. I would say yours are worth at least £400. Very nice quality antique.

I hope this answers your question.

I should have added that Manoah Rhodes & sons had their branch in Bradford in England, hence their jewellery, watches, opera glasses etc appear at English auctions. Thank you so much for using Just Answer!
