This is a wonderful pair of Lorgnette Eye Glasses that are 14K White Gold Filled and therefore are post 1916. These eye glasses are spring loaded and can be opened by pushing the very small button at the base of the handle and pushing the side bar that is located on the eye glass that will pop out. A bit tricky, but it does work. Because these glasses do not have nose guards, you simply lay the bridge on the eyeglasses on the bridge of your nose and always holding the handle, you will be able to read what you need to very clearly. These glasses are made for quick menu scans or theatre brochures / pamphlets.

These glasses come with a genuine leather pouch… I do not believe that they are original to the glasses, but they did come with them and their age is Circa 1900. And also a sterling silver chain. Please note, you may want a longer chain if you chose to wear these as a pendant.
Approximate measurements are:
• 3 inches from the bottom of the filigree handle to the top of the glasses
• Width of the glasses is 2 inches
• Length of the chain is 18 inches
• Length of the case is 3 inches by 2.5 inches
• Condition is Excellent – No known issues, no scratches or scuffs, beautiful filigree work
• Hallmark is on the bridge of the glasses “1/10 14K GF”
• Please Note: that in the photos, the mannequin that I use is small, so they look a bit funny hanging from the neck in some of the photos
