1″W x 5.5″L
A stunning fashion accessory popular in days of yore, this antique Victorian lorgnette features a highly decorative 10kt vermeil handle, accented with a diamond starburst. The spectacles, featuring 14kt yellow gold frames, fold and conceal within the handle, released by a subtle button on the side. Popularized by high society, the lorgnette was used to improve vision without sacrificing appearance, as it was considered unbecoming for women to wear spectacles at the time of their creation. This ornate relic is a gorgeous example, maintaining high society sensibilities.
This lorgnette is amongst hundreds of antiques that are available at our location in Columbus, Ohio! Come in today and see the full collection.
