Antique Magnifying Quizzing Glass Rolled Gold Pendant | Georgian Victorian
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 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 is a wonderful piece of history which would make a great pendant or the perfect addition to any collection.
