Tested as 18ct gold, this wold be heavily cased over a base, probably silver

Very good to excellent antique condition.  Gold casing is thick and heavy, bright and a lovely rich yellow gold in hue.  One miniscule loss to inside of the bottom loop/handle where a chain would have rubbed when worn over the years, very slight and commensurate with this beauties age.  No repairs of damage anywhere else.  Lens has no chip, abrasions and magnifies wonderfully.  Gorgeous, heavy and quality Victorian quizzing glass.

Please note boxes and chains are for display only unless otherwise stated.
