This is a most pleasing lorgnette. It appears to be gold-filled and has a wide circlet near the top ring which is enhanced with small turquoise. When this is pulled towards the handle, the framed lenses separate for use. The lenses magnify for close range and would presumably have been used for reading. They fold back nicely into position and would look most charming on a gold and turquoise guard chain. The condition is very good for age and this would make a lovely addition to a collection of early fashion accessories and glasses. Closed length 3.5 ins (8.8cm). Weight 14 grams. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $42.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
