This outstanding magnifying glass, combined with a 19th century beautifully carved Chinese elephant ivory handle, is a stunner and excellently assembled with a great lens for magnification. The overall length measures 12" long and the lens is 4 1/2" in diameter. Must see to believe. The deep pierced work, intricatly carved(3 1/2" long) of the (6 1/4" long) ivory handle is perfection with several figures, trees, buildings, bridges etc. It is a little bit over 1/2" in depth at the deepest point and 1" wide at the widest point. The ivory grains are well defined and the piece has a great patina. This magnifying glass has been well cared for, held lovingly by the former owner, and is in perfect condition. The flat underside of the handle is smooth and comfortable to hold. This piece came out of a great local collection where only the finest was had. Satisfaction guaranteed. 3 day return privilege providing item returned in sent condition. Postage and insurance extra. Sales tax charged in New York state unless valid tax number and resale certificate provided.
