Regency Magnifying Glass - Chatelaine Pendant on Chain

Beautiful and functional - what a lovely idea!

A beautiful Regency Magnifying Glass, made of glass and pewter, that makes for an accessory both useful and attractive.

Small magnifying glasses were often worn as a pendant, brooch or chatelaine. This type of jewellery was very popular in Jane's day, as most women did not want to wear glasses in public. The solution was to convert necessity into a thing of beauty!

As well as a lovely statement piece of jewellery, it is ideal for the embroiderer who needs a little help with magnifying their stitches. It comes with a long chain for safe-keeping, and is supplied in an elegant black box.

  • The magnifying glass is 7.5 cm long and 4 cm at its widest point.

  • The chain is 68 cm long.

  • Made from pewter and glass

  • Supplied in a gift box
