Big and Small: St. Moritz binoculars

St. Moritz was a US trade marked brand of the New York City firm Manhattan Novelty Corporation. My small St. Moritz 6x15 binoculars post date the US occupation period, but predate JB codes, so date 1952-Nov. 1959, and carry an exporter logo that I am quite familiar with, but which I  have never found any documentation about. Likewise my small St Moritz 7x18 post date the US occupation period, but predate JB codes, so date 1952-Nov. 1959, and have the same logo. My larger St. Moritz 6x30 binoculars post date the US occupation period, but  predate JB codes, so date 1951 to Nov. 1959. They carry an exporter logo :” TB” in diamond that I cannot presently identify with documentation. My larger St. Moritz 7x50 binoculars post date the US occupation period, but presumably predate JB codes, so date 1951 to Nov. 1959. They carry an exporter logo of “ T ” in triangle that I cannot presently identify with documentation.

Not Big ! Not Small ! Not Binoculars !  Chicken Glasses !!!

I am sticking my 1940’s chicken glasses in because they are optical; related to perception and survival; most of you have probably never have seen or heard of them; and I think they are great fun in a weird/freakish way. In the middle of the last century these were installed on chickens. Chickens instinctively peck at certain things, and if a chicken got slightly injured all the others would peck at the blood and hurt or kill it. Cannibalism !!!   With these red glasses that blood could not be perceived, and so more chickens would survive. A slightly different cheaper plastic version is still being made for worldwide distribution in the 2020s ! Just google “Chicken Glasses” !

Hambletonian based on a 1953 US patent and 1954 ad claim was a brand of Peerless Camera Stores of New York City. One of my small Hambletonian 6x15 binoculars post date the US occupation period, but predate JB codes, so date 1952-Nov. 1959, and carry the TOA mark of Toa Optical Co., Ltd. (Toa Kōgaku Kōgyō Kabushiki-geisha )( 東亜光学株式会社 of Japan. Another of my My small Hambletonian 6x15 binoculars post date the US occupation period, but predate JB codes, so date 1952-Nov. 1959.

Big and Small: Minette binoculars , Minette Gold Star binoculars, Gold Star binoculars

I believe that Minette, Minette Gold Star, and Gold Star binoculars were associated brands of Minato Shoki Co. Ltd. of Yokohama Japan. My small Gold Star 6x15 binoculars have a frame made by JE50/ Tanaka Koki Seisakujo. Inc. of Japan. My Gold Star Minette 8x20 binoculars have a frame made by JE7/ Nippon Kogaku of Japan. My largest Minette Gold Star 7x50 binoculars were assembled by JB233/ Shuzaburo Ishikawa (Ishikawa Optical Ind.) of Japan, with body by JE9/ Sato Kogaku Kogyo Co. Ltd. Of Japan.

Big and Small: Fusco binoculars

Big and Small: Skymaster binoculars

Big and Small: Kurt Muller binoculars

I have never found documentation defining the background of Fusco brand use on binoculars (such as registered trade marks). My smaller Fusco 7x18 binoculars has no JB code but had a frame made by JE50/ Tanaka Koki Seisakujo. Inc. of Japan. My larger Fusco 7x35 binoculars were assembled by JB152 / Taito Kogaku Co. Ltd. Of Japan with frame/body made by JE30/ Kofu Kogaku Kogyo Co. Ltd. Of Japan.

Kurt Muller binoculars seem to have been a  non trade marked brand of a division of the Canadian firm Taymor Industries Ltd., who operated as a outdoor and camping outfitter for around forty years or so. My smaller 6x15 Kurt Muller binoculars post date the US occupation period, but predate JB codes, so date 1952 to Nov. 1959. They carry an E.B.L. marking I cannot identify. My larger 10x20 Kurt Muller binoculars were assembled by JB5/ Meiji Seiko Kogaku Ltd. 明治精工株式会社 of Japan , and they also have the MSC / Meiji Seiko Co. emblem. My larger 10x20 Kurt Muller binoculars were assembled by JB139/ Busho Kogaku Seisakujo. Inc. of Japan, with body made by JE11/ Omiya Kogaku Kikai Seisalcujo of Japan.
