Vintage English Quizzer
So many unusual English Victorian items have been uncovered and copied to use in our daily life. This round item is called a ‘Quizzer’ and could be carried in a small purse or pocket.
The quizzer is a handheld magnifier glass that is protected on each side by a cover. To open this quizzer look to the top and you will see the unusual hinge with the profile looking somewhat like a ‘birds’ head. Push up on the beak and the protected magnifier will slide out from the two covers. Measurements: diameter 1 3/4 inches, 2 3/4 inches including the hinges. Condition: good, minor user marks on the case and ‘glass’. Vintage
