Antique opera glasses by JM Schmidt optics.

Materials: iron, glass, mother of pearl.

Probably dates from 1890-1900 Wijde Kapelsteeg 1 Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Background:
The Schmidt shop, located on the corner of Rokin 72 and Wijde Kapelsteeg, is the oldest optics shop in the Netherlands. The shop does not only sell glasses, but traditionally also barometers, hygrometers, binoculars, magnifiers and loupes for a variety of purposes. From its start in 1866 to 1948 the shop was directed by Johann Michael Schmidt and his descendants. Then the management was taken over by others.
J.M. Schmidt was a goldsmith and started a shop in St. Nicholaas Street in 1866. In 1873, he moved to the Wijde Kapelsteeg 1, where he opened ‘Magazijn De Gouden Bril’.

    De projector is schroot. Op de foto.s is dit te zien volgens de verkoper. Hij wil de kosten vergoeden maar komt daar op terug, dus GEEN vergoeding !!! SLECHTE VERKOPER

    Deze meneer heeft zich slecht verdiept in het kavel zoals aangeboden. Vervolgens heeft hij de projector niet eens uitgeprobeerd. Dan bied ik hem aan om het geld te retourneren en vraag om zijn rekeningnummer. Geen respons.

    Wat moet je met zo'n amateur die zichzelf niet goed heeft geïnformeerd. Ik kan hier helemaal niets mee.

    Derhalve vind ik dit een onterechte review.
