This Victorian folding lorgnette has been crafted in 15ct yellow gold.

The folding eyeglasses are of the style patented by Robert Bretell Bate in 1825, incorporating a spring-loaded 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.

The lorgnette is fitted with a short, knopped, hallmarked loop handle.
