A small vintage, possibly antique, white metal handled magnifying glass with fob to handle, decorated throughout with embossed flowers.
The glass itself is intact (but see below) with good magnification. We could not find any hallmarks on this item, even continental ones, which is why we are describing the composition as white metal.
Although structurally sound, the obverse to the glass shows signs of wear and slight chipping around the edges, but which do not seem apparent when looking at the glass from the front (we have tried to show in the photographs). The price reflects the condition and the uncertainty with regard to composition.
The magnifier, in total, measures approximately 3.75in from the bottom to the top of the handle (excluding the fob). With the fob extended the length is approximately 4in. The visible glass from the front of the magnifier is approximately 1in in diameter. Exact age unknown, but believed to date from the first, or earlier, part of last century. Weighs just over 30g.
