Conversation has had its prescribed etiquette. During the late Victorian\r\nera and into the Belle Époque one’s monocle served to intimidate and\r\ndisadvantage. A houseguest who overstayed his welcome… an unwelcome suitor\r\nto a favorite daughter? Now a tool of study and fun, be it to study the\r\nlines on your palm, a picture, fingerprints, small print? A gift with\r\nexcellent provenance, an accessory that delivers. The magnifying glass\r\ntelescopes up and down. It angles by adjusting a clever ball-joint. Solid\r\nbrass with duotone bronze finish, this is a must-have for any desk. Item\r\nmeasures 9.25" x 3.25" x 8" and magnifies 3x.
