A pair of 14 carat gold lorgnettes.
This nice pair of lorgnettes that most likely date from the early 1900s. They are a family heirloom that have been in storage for many years.
They measure 3.35 inches high by 1.75 inches wide when closed. They open by activating a small button on the handle. They are marked 14K on the underside of the bridge.
The glass has some small spots in the viewing area that would not affect the view, and some very small stress fractures in on of the lenses near the handle and where the frame comes together. The frames appear flawless.
The glasses appear white in the photos but are actually a gold color.
