Silver and Enamel Lorgnette.
Sprung-action lorgnette - made in 935 silver (above sterling grade) and decorated with blue enamel and patterns of grapes and leaves. Folded, it can be used as a quizzing glass or magnifier - when you depress the small button on the handle it springs open to spectacle size. Slightly curved lenses - one has a chip on the inner rim. I presume new lenses could be fitted. Size: Length of item, folded is 14.5 cm. Width of the lenses open is 10.25 cm. Each lens is approx. 4 cm diameter. Apart from the lens chip, this item is in excellent condition. Early 20th century.
