Text Box: One of the nice things about collecting miniature binoculars is that they are small and take up a modest amount of space. Obsolete industrial furniture such as these blueprint cabinets I acquired (above) make an excellent way to secure a huge number of small binoculars where they are out of the way, don’t collect dust, but are still convenient to get at and view. Trial fit binoculars in drawers before purchasing cabinet. Some cabinets with tall drawers will accommodate full size binoculars. Compare the space required for hundreds of miniature binoculars, versus larger binoculars….  
Text Box: ...like these massive 10x80  Flakfernrohr binoculars in my collection. These World War II binoculars were used for spotting aircraft in conjunction with the 8.8cm (88mm) German Flak antiaircraft artillery. Quite nice optics. These heavy binoculars were used with an elaborate cradle fitted to a tripod.
