A throw back in time when so many historical characters wore a pince nez. They clasp the bridge of the nose and stay in place only to be removed in a dramatic gesture at the appropriate moment. I am surprised they are still not used by the legal profession to create courtroom drama.
This pair are 3 1/2 inche's wide opening to 4 inches. There is a spring which keeps them firmly fixed on the nose.
The pince nez are double gold. Double gold has about double the gold used in gold fill or rolled gold.
They are in excellent condition and still usable. They are for reading and I have used them since I found them for reading small print. Ideal for a lawyer!!
There are two other pince nez in my shop at this link https://www.rubylane.com/ni/shop/partnerantiques/ilist?q=pince%20nez
