Here we have a very nice set of opera glasses or miniature binoculars. They are marked "Made in Occupied Japan", which means they were made between 1945 and 1952. The top has a cool looking logo and apparently the maker is "To Ko". On the bottom, it's marked "Pride", which I assume is the model name. 


Excellent small pocket binoculars. The outer leather carry case has various scuffs and scratches and is missing the strap, but it has done the job of protecting the glasses and appears solid enough to continue doing so. The paint is off the binoculars in a few places, and there's some coating on one lens that isn't on the other. 2.5 power magnification and very clear optics. Focus wheel is smooth and easy to turn. 


Overall, terrific pocket field glasses with a little bit of a history back story.
