I am lucky enough to be able to offer you a beautiful, very old antique optical lens with an oval cut out in the tab. This cut out makes these lenses perfect for hanging from a necklace, ribbon, leather or other material. These lenses are from an optical set made by American Optical (circa 1890's).

The rim of this lens measures approx 1½" and a bit over 2" to the tip of the tab. The lens has frosted edges as shown in the photo. The tabs may or may not be imprinted with a number that varies from lens to lens, as does the thickness of the glass lens.

I have a selection of both silver and brass/gold tone frames - If you have a preference, please add your color choice to the notes section when ordering. If a color preference is not specified the frame color will be chosen at random.

Please note that these are very old and each lens has it's own beautiful patina from years of use and the glass lens it's self is in perfect condition.

These little gems are perfect for making charms, Steampunk jewelry, collage, mixed media, altered art, and various other projects!

Be sure to grab yours while they last!

NOTE: if you need more than the number of lenses shown available please convo me as I may have additional lenses available.

Frequently asked questions about InkStainedRoni

If possible I will try to accommodate your requests. Please feel free to contact me with requests.
Etsy's shipping calculator is fairly unpredictable when estimating shipping. If you feel that the shipping on your order exceeds what you would normally pay please contact me. I can provide a private listing with the correct postage or if you choose I will refund excess postage (over 1.00).

I package my items with great care. Each item is wrapped with bubble wrap (when appropriate), tissue or tucked in a cellophane wrapper. I try to ensure that each and every item arrives at it's destination in perfect condition.

It's not required but insurance is strongly suggested as I have no control what happens to your package once it is in the hands of the post office.
