    Not my usual kind of thing, but I thought they were quite nice. Each about 4 1/2 inches tall. From searching, I would call them Bohemian military portrait glasses. Does that sound about right? What would they have been used for?
    And, what kind of uniforms, French I'm thinking?

    I am assuming no marks on the bottoms.

    The one on the left reminds me of Napoleon Bonaparte.

    Just did a quick google, and the one on the left does look like Napoleon.

    Before I read the "Napoleon" data, I'd guessed French. The gold collar on top is very reminiscent of the gold collar on a certain vase with a temporary marble in it. ....Someone may have suggested it might be French, too.

    Boney. Those have real value: the French still collect things with him on. Mid 19th.
