These fine and impressive antique Victorian lorgnette has been crafted in 9 ct yellow gold.

The frame of these folding eyeglasses has been embellished with a sharp chased decoration.

A ring loop to the handle allows this impressive lorgnette to be worn as a pendant, as was the style of the period.

The folding lorgnette incorporated a hinged mechanism which permits the glasses to be folded over each other in a compact form.

On releasing the small round catch positioned to the border of one lens, the second lens moves smoothly into position.

This antique 1890's lorgnette has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 9 ct gold.
