Here is a beautiful lorgnette rendered in lavish 14 karat yellow gold. Simple yet elegant, they feature a small handle ideal for stringing on a chain or cord.

The gold has been professionally tested.

The frames fold inward, overlapping over one another and then tuck neatly into their darling leather case.

There are two beautifully carved bands of foliate scrolls around the handle.

The case features an embossed inscription on the front in bright gold letters reading "Curry + Paxton London".

Celebrated ophthalmologists in their own right, Curry and Paxton antique medical equipment is highly valuable and sought after today.

The frames are in fantastic condition, exhibiting only some very light scratching and a few minuscule areas of darkening.

The lenses are quite scratched but can be very easily replaced.
