The Georgians could not see any better than we can see. They used these quizzers, or magnifying glass that could be worn around the neck. This one is gold cased, which is an early type of gold plating. The handle swivels, and the glass itself is in good condition for it's over 200 years of age. Some people actually put their own prescription lens in these quizzers. They are light. This one weighs 12.15 grams, and is 3 and 1/4 inches long. It's a nice Georgian piece to display on a desk or to wear around one's neck.
