These fine antique lorgnette glasses of 14k rose gold are not only in pristine condition but dated and maker-marked (Fox Pat. Jan. 7, 02). Not only do the spectacles have their lovely velvet-lined leather case, but it's dated, too (Pat. Mar 02, 1902) - AND there's a matching hairpin with keeper chain. Late Victorian and Edwardian ladies' sturdy "Gibson Girl" hairstyles were well-suited to performing the task for which we now use leash cords.

Spectacles measure 4" from lens to lens, case is a bit larger and the pin is 2 1/2" long, with 10" of fine chain and a 1/2" hook. The hairpin and chain haven't been tested, but also look to be rose gold.
