Antique Georgian Gold Cased Large Magnifying Quizzing Glass Circa 1830
Immerse yourself in the intricate details of the embossed gold casing, which adds a touch of regal charm to this already stunning accessory. The magnifying lens, which is thick and showing no scuff marks, offers a clear and precise view, making it perfect for studying intricate details or simply indulging in the joy of exploration.
Quizzing glass handles or loops were often swivel-mounted to make it easier to lay flat when hung from a chain, and this one is no exception.
Wear this one on your favourite chain or perhaps a plush black velvet ribbon, whether you’re a collector of vintage treasures or a lover of all things Georgian, this quizzing glass is a must-have addition to your collection. Its size and beauty make it a statement piece that is sure to turn heads and spark conversations.
7.8cm with bale, by 5.3cm
9ct gold cased
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.
