R. BLACKINTON & Company sterling glasses case & pince nez glasses :


sterling glasses case and pince nez glasses with the initials "CJM" on the front and an absolutely beautiful design of flowers and scrolls on both the front and the back.  It is marked "sterling 2721" on the inside lower rim, as well as a maker's mark for R Blackinton & Company, 4-1/4" by 1-7/8".

The lining is a dark purple-brown color and it shows wear, but the case itself is in excellent condition and it snaps shut easily.  I think this would be a late Victorian case.  The total weight of the container minus the glasses is 2.24 ounces.

I have read that this  company operated for over 100 years, from about 1862-1967, and the pieces I have had by them were all extremely well done.  It was founded by Walter Ballou and Roswell Blackinton in Maine.  View   View   View
