Description

This listing is for one vintage glass lens.

Vintage glass lenses. These are old glass lenses with "wells" inside the lenses where you can display small items. These lenses make great do-it-yourself paperweights.

The glass lenses are very clear, and it is very easy to see the items inside and beneath them. Glass is hard to photograph and it is hard to show how clear the glass is in these photos.


They are 2 5/8 inches in diameter and 7/8 inch high to the top of the lenses. These clear glass lens have the magnifying properties we all love in paperweights.

There are some very small signs of wear and age use. The bottom edges are grounded and have a slightly unfinished look because when these were used as lenses they fit into collars or holders of some kind.

They will make a really nice new looking paperweights. See how great the old Paris map looks underneath one. The other two examples show you how else you could repurpose these vintage lenses.

If i have forgotten anything, please contact me and ask before making a purchase.

Again~ One vintage glass lens without any items or decorations is what is included with this listing. The other items shown in the photos are not included.
