This 14K white gold lorgnette necklace may be good at the opera or rock concert but it's even better at reading the small print on supermarket labels, contracts, and vintage jewelry. At least for our eyes, these make excellent magnifiers at close range.
The lorgnette is decorated with an Art Nouveau design on both sides. It opens with barely a flick of the wrist. Easy to open or close as it folds into itself and snaps closed.
The lorgnette measures 1 by 2 1/4 inches folded. Opened up, it's 4 1/4 inches across with handle by 1 1/8 inch high at lens. Inside of the bridge is marked 14K. Also acid tested for 14K.
We added a long solid sterling silver woven chain to the lorgnette...a perfect match to the white gold. The chain measures 29 inches long. It's marked 925 ITALY with maker's mark. Lorgnette and chain weigh 19.6 grams.
This Victorian - Art Nouveau era eyeglasses accessory was useful back in the day of going to the opera. It's even more useful now when you need to read the fine print. Makes for a fantastic necklace too.
Excellent antique condition with no notable flaws to report. Circa 1910.
