Conversation has had its prescribed etiquette. During the late Victorian era and into the Belle Époque one’s monocle served to intimidate and disadvantage. A house guest who overstayed his welcome… an unwelcome suitor to a favorite daughter? Now magnifying glass is a tool of study and fun, be it to study the lines on your palm, a picture, fingerprints, small print? Empress reading glass is a gift with excellent provenance, a desk accessory that delivers.
This magnifying glass telescopes up and down. Magnifying reading glass angles by adjusting a clever ball-joint. Made of solid brass with duo-tone bronze finish, this magnifying reading glass is a must-have for any desk.
