A marvelous folding lorgnette in an engraved sterling silver pendant. The spectacles cleverly unfold from a pinstriped case embellished on the front with a marcasite-set bow. The eye glass lenses sit in exquisitely engraved frames. A decorative integrated bale makes this charming accessory easy to wear on a lorgnette chain or one of our Ancient Influences married chains. You will never lose your readers again. Circa 1920.
A lorgnette is a pair of spectacles that is held in place using a handle rather than fitting over the ears or nose.
