This lorgnette is classically beautiful and in excellent condition. I believe it is American as it is marked 18K (rather than 750)in two places that I have found. It is marked on the handle ring and also on the bridge of the glasses. I was able to photo the mark on the glasses but not on the handle.
Closed it measures 5 inches long, the lenses each measure about 1.5 inches across and the measurement of the lenses when opened measure about 4.25 inches across. The lorgnette weighs 27.5 grams. The mechanism to open works beautifully.
