The form resembles that shown in the 1827 French patent for “binocles à tirage simultané” (binocular glasses that can be focused simultaneously) that was issued to Charles-Toussaint Bautain, an optician who began in business in Paris in 1816. Bautain probably knew about the introduction of binocular opera glasses in Vienna in 1823, and protested when Jacques-Philippe Lemière, also of Paris, received a French patent for a similar object in 1825.
