This quality Vintage Quizzing glass features a large thick magnifying glass set in Sterling Silver hallmarked for Silver on the rim.

The quizzing glass originally dangled at the end of 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 quizzing glass would make a great magnifying glass - especially for looking at your jewellery!

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