Item Description

An elegant, Regency period Rosewood framed gallery glass, the handle united to the frame by a gilt brass collar. dia: 8.75 inches; overall length 17.25 in
The gallery glass is a large and impressive type of magnifying glass, the lens of a particular focal point that allows for the gentle magnification of a work of art from a considerable and varied distance, thus the collector or connoisseur is able to look in closer detail at a large hanging picture or standing sculpture. Principally fashionable during the Regency period, this a typical example of circa 1820.
