I won this lot at my very first night-auction at my local auction-house. Was very, very excited! I've been chasing after a quizzing glass for damn near 10 years and now I have FOUR to choose from! Three are sterling silver and one of them is pinchbeck brass. One of them is not that old I don't think, but the others are all early Victorian or late Georgian in style. The lot also came with two pairs of lorgnettes in gold-filled brass. They don't interest me much, so I'm going to try and sell those off. A friend of mine recovering from eye-surgery is already thinking of buying one so that she can have them fitted out as reading-glasses But I'm keeping the quizzers for myself!!
