There is a record of a book in 1870 advertising Queen & Company opera glasses, although the company first began in 1853 (and was known primarily as being a microscope manufacturer). Yet with certainty, opera glasses were made by Queen, as advertised in a book published Jan. 1st 1870 (therefore, 1869 would be the earliest year that could be proven for Queen's making opera glasses).
Did not come with a case.
