These glasses are called Pince Nez (French for Pinched Nose) or Lorgnette. These glasses are engraved and etched with decoration. They are meant to be worn on the tip of your nose to give you a very special elegant look. The sterling needs some more cleaning and it could use a nice sterling long chain to use with the handle. These glasses are 3 3/4 inches across and 1 1/4 wide and has a 1 inch handle. They are marked sterling and open and close with a pressed button on the handle. These are very lovely and special For you from the High Plains of Kansas!
