These vintage folding opera lorgnette eyeglasses were made in Germany where they're experts at operas and making beautiful lorgnette glasses.
These are made of 800 silver (80% silver) which is one of Germany's silver standards.
These are made with great precision. Folded up, they measure 2 1/4 by 1 1/8 inches which includes the beautiful marcasite covered handle.
The marcasite handle flips up, you push the little lever down, and that releases the eyeglasses to open up. When open, these measure 4 3/4 by 1 1/8 inches with handle. The marcasite handle itself is 1 3/4 inches long. It's made in a flowing ribbon design with sparkling marcasites.
The lens fold in half and click shut.
The glasses still have the original unpolished patina. There are no cracks, scratches or missing marcasites.
These are in excellent vintage condition, ready for the opera or just to magnify something close.
