Subject: My New Pair!!!!

Message Detail:
Hi folks!

I just bought a new pair of old Field Glasses and they are in great shape! They appear to be from the period, but I know that the general style was around for quite a while. I'll try to get a photo up of it. They are 10.5" long fully extended including the shades.
They are wrapped on the body with dark brown leather.
The focus knob is (I believe) wood.
The eye pieces are brass.
The maker's mark on the underside of the tubes show:

Bardou & Son <>
Paris G | B
|
TRADEMARK

(Left Side) (Right Side)

The Writing on the left is done in script
The logo on the right side looks kind of like a physician's Crosius but with a Circle on top.
Hard to duplicate it here. The words are in block letters

I've seen lots of Field glasses but I've never seen anything by this maker or of this quality.
probably 5X at least with flawless glass.
Anyone (DAVE GADDY) have a clue on this set?
