Really small and stocky, this Galilean theater binoculars fascinated me for its compactness (closed 6 cm. wide, 3 cm. high)

It vaguely resembles a "salt and pepper" set and is an earliest  products by O.P.L. Optique et PrĂ©cision de Levallois.

In March 1916, OPL succeeded an aerodynamics laboratory opened in 1908 by Armand de Gramont in Levallois-Perret.  In 1916, this laboratory was transformed into an optical device manufacturing workshop and produced aiming sights for the needs of war.
