Early 20th century set of tortoise shell style lorgnettes, leather case, neck lanyard, and original box.
Early 20th century complete set of "tortoise shell" style lorgnettes, adjustable ribbon neck lanyard, leather case, and original box as purchased from Pictons Ophthalmic Opticians on Union Street in Bristol.
Lorgnettes were used for reading and pursuits like opera and the races, for those who needed spectacles, but either didn't wish to wear them regularly, or wanted to make a certain style statement. They were meant to fold flat nicely to place in handbag or pocket.
This is a lovely pair, and comes with all its original pieces. The round glass lenses I estimate would fall into the 2.5 to 2.75 magnification range. They very neatly fall into the long shaped handle with loop on end for the attached lanyard to use to wear around the neck for convenience.
Size-7 inches long by 1 5/8 inches closed; 11.5 inches fully extended straight.
Weight-130 grams including case and box.
These would be lovely to use or display on an antique table next to or on top of a leather bound book.
A nice piece of history in very good condition.
