These are a pair of folding glasses called Lorgnhettes.They date from circa 1820. Surprisingly in good order as the glass has no scratches to speak of and certainly no cracks.They fold very well together.The detail of the folding glasses has a gold coloured engraved pattern to the end and a fixed engraved ring to the other end.I feel they would have been attached to a ladies belt rather like a chatelaine for close up work. They magnify well. A true antique item which is a good collectors lot. Or they could still be used? Some rubbing loss of metal colour to the ball holding area of the design but otherwise they are in good condition for their age..
