UNGER BROTHERS sterling Art Nouveau Iris motif lorgnette, circa 1900UNGER BROTHERS sterling Art Nouveau Iris motif lorgnette, circa 1900. This is 5" long by 1-1/4" and weighs about 1.28 ounces in total. Marked inside under the Iris, and like most Unger lorgnettes, it's a difficult mark to see. It will not open without a bit of help, as the opening spring is broken, but it does close with a click and stay closed. There is a small chip in one of the lenses, so it's priced accordingly.
See "Jewelry & Metalwork in the Arts & Crafts Tradition" by Karlin, page 166 for a very similar lorgnette. Unger Brothers was an American company that worked in New Jersey and they made both jewelry and sterling items starting in the late 1870s. View View
