Collection of 5, circa late Qing Dynasty embroidered glass cases. Eyeglasses were always considered a luxury status item, since not everyone who needed them could afford a pair and they were emblematic of the scholar class as well. So it is just natural that these precious items were kept in a beautiful case. Two of these have the original glass “slide” fasteners. L: 14cm5.5in.
