Very good to excellent antique Georgian condition.  This is a strong and solid piece, the glass lens is exceptionally solid and thick, with no chips, abrasions or wear, only incredibly minor marks to be seen under scrutiny,  and magnifies so very well!  Top loop swivels as intended.  Fantastic piece of functional jewellery.
