Antique 30cm LORGNETTE glasses early plastic or Bakelite folding for theatre or Opera

"a pair of glasses or opera glasses held in front of a person's eyes by a long handle at one side."

A lorgnette is a pair of spectacles with a handle, used to hold them in place, rather than fitting over the ears or nose. The word lorgnette is derived from the French lorgner, to take a sidelong look at, and Middle French, from lorgne, squinting.

The lorgnette was usually used as a piece of jewellery, rather than to enhance vision. Fashionable ladies usually preferred them to spectacles. These were very popular at masquerade parties and used often at the opera. They were worn popularly in the 19th century.
