Antique Lorgnette 14K White Gold Art Deco Folding Opera Eyeglasses
Antique folding 14K white gold eyeglass frames or lorgnette/opera glasses. There are lenses in the frames (left lens does have a crack, see pic). The spectacles are finely made in beautiful 14k white gold with a gorgeous filigree flower pattern engraved throughout. These spectacles have square lenses and are stamped 14k on the nose bridge. Measures 3½" end to end on the frame. 4 1/4" with handle, 1" wide. Weighs 15.4g.
Based upon our research, these were likely produced in the 1920's. For their age, they look almost new and are in marvelous shape (except for the lens crack). It is very rare to find a pair of these in solid gold that are so ornate and in such wonderful condition. A truly unique and rare piece. Fine jewelry, not scrap.
