Rare to find Antique Art Nouveau Gilt Metal Handled Magnifying Glass, with a stunning paneled mother of pearl handle. Once a must for every lady's desk, this beauty has seen some use, but she remains a delight. The handle at the very end had a cap monogrammed with S L, this has flattened out over the last century or so.
The glass is in good condition, and is attached firmly. There is wear, patina and more as shown, and probably a lot of juicy secret stories if it could speak! Amazing for your collection, gets along well with French desks.
