Antique Lorgnette Glasses

Description

  • Measure approx 4cm across each lens and approx 10.5cm in length overall when closed
  • Marked inside the bridge 'Filled 1/10' indicating that these are rolled gold - we believe they may date from the turn of the 20th century
  • In good condition for their age. One lens has some small chips on one side (see photo) with the other lens having tiny nibbles to the edge. Both have light surface scratches with age and wear. The mechanism to open them by pushing the ring up at the bottom of the handle works very well. The metal work has rubbing of the gold layer along the edges, revealing the brass underneath but as they are of a similar colour we don't feel this is particularly visible.

See photos for more details. 100% of the profit from all our items goes to the Hospice of St Francis.
