This is an adorable lorgnette just loaded with sparkling marcasites. When closed up you see a lovely flower and leaves and when you need to open, the flower and leaves becomes your handle. In addition, the handle was often used as a clip onto a suit or blouse.
The frames are unusual as they are octagons and the glass is magnified. When closed, the lorgnette measures approximately 2 1/8 inches and when opened the glasses measure 3.5 inches by 1 inch.
This little treasure has its own lovely case which measures approximately 3 1/8 by 2 inches.
