I adore this stunning antique, Georgian era gold quizzing glass pendant and you are sure to love it too!

Usually worn around the neck on a ribbon or chain for ease of use, these beautiful decorative pieces really were a functional piece of jewellery.

This quizzing glass has a heavily chased repousse 9ct gold frame and loop handle with floral detailing and hollow gold beads, the glass is clear and magnified for studying things up close.

Perfect for adding to your favourite antique chain or neck mess or wearing with a nice plain black ribbon.

Worn by both men and women of the period, a perfect example of beauty in a functional item, something that the Georgian and Victorian eras took great pleasure in producing.

Marks and era:
It is unmarked, tests as 9ct gold, English make c1800s, late Georgian era, with a bronze core.

Fair used condition overall, some light surface wear commensurate with age, light scratches to the lense, evidence of soft solder to the handle, possible old repair.

2.90" length
