Folding Antique Lorgnette in 14-Karat White Gold

About

This Gilded Age 14-karat white gold, snap-open or fold-close, lady's lorgnette is designed to wear as an accessory around the neck for reading theatre or opera programs and menus in dark restaurants. It folds neatly to place in the purse as well, for the more discrete woman. The bulbous handle is decorated with chasing and filigree work, and it ends in a chain-accepting ring and loop. There is fine chasing all along the edges of the two lens holders. It is the perfect gift for the lady-about-town.
