This listing is for a lovely Victorian Period Sterling Silver ladies lorgnette (folding opera glasses) with ring for hanging from ribbon or thin silver chain around the neck. Silver has elegant embossed design on both sides. Lorgnette opens by pressing the small button on the side (at center), however, although the spring works correctly the glasses fit tightly in the case and need a little push to be released. Once released, they spring open and stay in position. We did not find a silver mark, however, the silver does test to be Sterling.
Dimensions: 5 1/4" long (including ring soldered to handle but does not include slip ring), 1 1/4" wide and just over 1/4" thick. Weighs 35 grams.
Condition: These lovely opera glasses are is in excellent Estate condition with no noted flaws except for the release mechanism needing slight assistance to release eye glasses.
