Product Description

A really beautifully made, elegant pair of early 19th Century Georgian English Reading Glasses in good condition.

The glasses have a silver frame, which is not hallmarked, and have circular lenses. The lenses are graduated for close up reading. The case is made of wood, with silver fittings, covered in green coloured shagreen (ray skin). The escutcheon on the top has the letters MS engraved on it.

Condition of both the glasses and case is good. There is a bit of nibbling on the edges of one lens. The case has a little bit of damage on one edge, but it is quite minor and does not detract from the beauty of the piece.

Size: 12.25 x 5 x 0.8 cm (4 ¾ x 2 x 3/8 inches)
Weight: 65 g
