This quality Antique Quizzing glass features a magnifying glass set in Rolled Gold dating to the early 19th century.

The quizzing glass generally dangled at the end of a guard chain worn around the neck and was held up to the eye to “quiz” (stare, glance, look at quizzically) people and objects. The wearer would sometimes glare at a person through his or her quizzing glass as a manner of set-down or mockery.

This wonderful piece of history would make a great pendant or the perfect addition to any collection.

This quality quizzing glass remains in great condition. The detailing is crisp, and the glass is free from damage. The rolled gold has light wear, but nothing distracts from the beauty! Also, one cap is missing from the connector; please see pictures.
