Sold Out 102036P

Measuring app. 4 1/4 inches long, with a ball-like top of intertwined buckles, featuring a Stanhope viewer photograph of a Victorian woman, inside, viewed through the small peep hole. Fashioned in 14k. Circa 1865"This type of photo viewer, called a Stanhope, was a popular novelty during the second half of the 19th century. A Stanhope is a small glass lens through which a photograph can be viewed, usually housed in a piece of jewelry, writing implement, sewing accessory or other object. The photograph itself is tiny and could literally fit on the head of a pin. The lens allows the microscopic image to be seen when held to the light."
