This unique vintage 1920's continental dress clip is designed with an attached lorgnette. The silver double leaf is embellished with multiple gleaming marcasites & features a push "lever" lorgnette. When worn, in a pocket or under a lapel, the lorgnette is concealed from view beneath the garment's fabric. Certainly, a stylish piece of Art Deco jewelry with something extra! Pushing down the lever releases the lorgnette to become fully exposed & functional. The sturdy silver leaf can serve as a handle. It is stamped 835. The frames can accommodate the owner's prescription.
