From a bygone era. These lorgnettes or spectacles are awesome! Made of 14k white gold, they fold up and come with their original case. They would have been worn around the neck on a lovely chain that probably matched them. We do not have the chain. But a white gold or silver chain of your choice would work. They are hallmarked "14K Pat. Jan 30 '17. so they are almost 100 years old. The lenses are in great shape with no scratches or chips. I am not exactly sure what their magnification is. It is not strong. But does help.
