An antique american 14k yellow gold lorgnette decorated with a fabulous figural design featuring a border of two griffins and a gargoyle-both classic Victorian motifs-on both sides of lorgnette. A spring mechanism releases a hinged pair of reading glasses that are hidden with the lorgnette. Traditionally, these were the Victorian's answer to our contemporary reading glasses. Presently, many women wear them as unique pendants-hanging them from beautiful antique chain. American, circa 1890, fully hallmarked lovely patina. Excellent condition. Length 4 1/4", width 1 1/4".
