68 Admirers

A stylish pair of lorngettes that spring open to reveal glasses that magnify. Lorgnettes were a real fashion statement in the 1920s and would have been worn on a long silver chain. The handle is a very pretty design of a flower basket and an elegant bow with sapphires and rubies and an emerald for the flowers and a cabochon blue sapphire detail for the bow. The graded marcasite (iron pyrites) glitters like rose diamonds in certain light. It is presented in it’s original red Moroccan leather box with black velvet and silk inside.
