I knew this company either , so I googled the history of this company.
This company had an iron/ aluminium foundry ( Eisengießerei ) and a punchingmachine factory ( Schnellpressenfabrik )
So they were technically able to make binoculars , but did they made the lenses themselves or were they supplied by others ?

Hi Guiseppe, I'm not really familar with French binoculars, but what I can say is: your heavy pair is definitely no German one!

BUONGIORNO!
Yes, tordalk is an Amazing Glass, but Now i show my Manufrance 10x40. Heavy and sturdy, all in solid Brass whit very good optical performance.
I belive it is a French renamed bino but   which builder? Is uncoated and probably made in the 40s......
Grazie

According to the 'Liste der Fertigungskennzeichen für Waffen , Munition und Gerät '  the code ;  cld means;

Mag, Maschinenfabrik Geislingen-Steige
Werk der Schnellpressenfabrik A.-G.,
Heidelberg, Geislingen-Steige

Wim, so, the Maschinenfabrik Geislingen-Steige  built also optical devices ?
