SIZE (WXH, inches): 7 x 7in

WEIGHT OF JUST THE BINOCULAR: 1000g

INCLUDED, BUT NOT IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS: original brown leather case (no strap)

COMMENTS BY RAFFI: popular model of Zeiss

SIZE (WXH, inches): 7.5 X 6

WEIGHT OF JUST THE BINOCULAR: 900g

OPTICAL CONDITION: clean

EXTERNAL CONDITION: please examine the photographs carefully.

EXTRAS NOT SHOWN IN THE PHOTOS: brown leather case (lid falls off)

COMMENTS BY RAFFI: I take "Nipole" to be Frank Nipole, a well-known make. They made good binoculars and not-so-good binoculars. This is a good one. In fact, I am mightily impressed. Wide angle (huge eyepieces), large prisms, spectacularly bright image, this really is a little gem!

20X50 Aloma Tokyo

20X50 Aloma Tokyo

Ref: NK-0518-d


SIZE (WXH, inches): 8X9

WEIGHT OF JUST THE BINOCULAR: 1280g

OPTICAL CONDITION: very sight dust

EXTERNAL CONDITION: please examine the photographs carefully.

Extras that are not in the photographs: tatty leather case fixed with tape.

COMMENTS BY RAFFI: large-ish, extra-powerful, good condition, made in Japan, all good. But, for me, it's just a modern binocular, no collector's value, and certainly nothing exceptional about the optical quality - so I've kept the price low.

6X to 15 X 35 Pentax Zoom

6X to 15 X 35 Pentax Zoom

Ref: KP-0516-b

SIZE (WXH, inches): 7.5X6.5 inches

WEIGHT OF JUST THE BINOCULAR: 1130g

OPTICAL CONDITION: slight dust

EXTERNAL CONDITION: please examine the photographs carefully.

COMMENTS BY RAFFI: a known make (Pentax), zooms from 6X all the way up to 15X magnification. Personally, I don't like zoom binocualrs. As you will see, the image is quite nice at 6X magnifcation and not good at 15X magnification. But that's just my opinion, if you want the 'flexibitily' of 6X to 15X (and a decent make) then go for it.

EXTERNAL CONDITION: please examine the photographs carefully.

COMMENTS BY RAFFI: people seem to like this model. It's OK. It's by Wray (that's good). But it's nothing remarkable (just my opinion).

Right-angle spectacles (

Right-angle spectacles ("TV Glasses")

Ref: kp-0215-n


I would guess, from the style, that these date from the 1910s or 1920s (perhaps a spectacle historian would like to educate me on this).

SIZE: the marker in the picture is divided in one inch sections

Today these would be called "TV glasses" for lying in bed facing the ceiling, and watching the TV at the end of the bed. However, I doubt that TV had been invented when these were made. They were, most likely, intended for someone who was bed-ridden (perhaps parallised from the war), they are far too well-made to be a toy. What is quite remarkable is not only the condition of the spectacles, but the actual case. the case is marked THEODORE HAMBLIN LTD. 15 WIGMORE STREET. LONDON. W.1 AND PROVINCES.

This one is brand new (click on link to reviews, below) but is out of alignment, so I'm selling it in the secondhand section (for nearly half price!)
