    Another part of lorgnette/optical collection.

    This color was called "eau du Nil" and was the rage at this time!

    For an oldest flapper who needs glasses to read tiny writing (not me, lol!)

    It bears french hallmark "charançon" (flour bug), 1893/1990, for foreign silver, 935, a model number 7, and a partial maker's mark B.

    Thanks for looking ;-)

      My father was an EENT doctor & my mother collected antique eyeglasses. She would frame them & hang them in his waiting room. This is a style she never could find & would have loved it. Brings back memories of those days. Thanks!

      A bit more elaborate framing than her's but they looked great. I still do shadow boxes sometimes.

      What a fabulous piece. Oh god, I think you are going to start me on another obsession...

      Let me know if you do DrFluffy. My sister has some, or most, of those old glasses & I don't think either of us have any attachment to them. I'll be up there in April.
