This magnifying lens is in very good condition commensurate with age. Surface age spots to the original gilt finish to the brass which we have chosen to leave to retain its antique character. Some rubbing to gilt on handle. No damage to the lens or mother-of-pearl handle. Please see images as these form an important part of the description.
