Antique Victorian English Mr. Punch Magnifying Glass Bamboo Handle Circa 1890
BE SURE TO SCROLL DOWN INTO THE DESCRIPTION AND LOOK ABOVE AND BELOW FOR MORE PHOTOS A very nice and unique English made Victorian Mr. Has a 4 diameter lense which has pretty good magnification. The metal collar around the top of the handle that holds the lense has an embossed floral design with an English mark Rd143384, which would date the magnifying glass as being made circa 1890. The handle appears to be bamboo, and at the very end of the handle is a finial of the famous Mr. Punch which shows great detail. Not sure of the metal used, may be pewter, I see no silver marks. I did not want to clean the metal parts because of the acquired dark aged patina. The handle measures 8 3/8 long including Mr. Punch finial, and the overall length from top of lense to the end of the handle is 12 ½ long.
