The most attractive faux tortoiseshell long lorgnette. The handle features beautiful fret work and comes with its original old black ribbon. In lovely condition for their age and working well. Once opened, the glasses stay in place. There are minor signs of wear commensurate with age (if you look very closely there are fine scratches to the handle and some remnants of dust in places.) Measures 9 inches long when closed, not including loop and ribbon at the bottom. When open the glasses measure approximately 4 inches from outer rim to the hinge. I am unsure of the age of these- the ribbon that they come from does show age (usable but showing some weakness).
