Antique pique lorgnette made in the Victorian era


A lorgnette were used as glasses that are mounted onto a handle rather than sitting on the nose and fitting over the ears, and here is a very rare and beautiful antique pique lorgnette that was made in the Victorian era of the 1870's and looks as amazing today as when it was made.

The handle is both so beautiful to admire and touch and measures 7.7cm in length or 9cm to the link to attache to a chain by 2.1cm wide or 10.5cm when open. This is certainly an item that will be admired regardless if it is used for a display on a collection or worn on a chain around the neck where it will certainly be a conversation starter.

This antique lorgnette is a real treasure and truly captivating.
