With elegant repousse design of an iris flower on both sides in gold vermeil, this stunning art nouveau lorgnette by Unger Brothers is 5" in length and 1 1/4" wide. The oval lenses open and close with a locking latch on one side. Both lenses are in good shape with mild scratching in the center. They magnify very well. The stem of the lorgnette has a curved loop, part of the artistry of the design, where a chain could be threaded through. In excellent condition for an early art nouveau piece, the lorgnette is hallmarked on the lower inside of the case with the UB in the center and 925 sterling fine around it. The lenses must be out to see the hallmark. An awesome example of the flowing lines and naturalistic characteristics of art nouveau, this lovely piece illustrates the incredible creativity of Unger Brothers.
