Antique FRENCH Brass MAP READER Loupe/Magnifying Glass


1 1/4" diameter x 1 1/2" (minimum height) or 1 3/4" (maximum height).


Signed "FRANCE" on one of the tripod legs. Nice magnifying glass map reader which is adjustable to the height needed, then you can slide it over a map or across text as you read. Antique but we are not able to determine its exact age.
