Lorgnette (face–à-main), Tiffany & Co., c. 1900 - c. 1910

gold (metal), h 12.7cm × w 3.5cm. More details

Around 1900 French fashion set the tone everywhere. In the United States, large jewellery houses, such as Tiffany & Co. in New York, were instrumental in disseminating it. Not only did they sell French wares, they also had objects designed locally that emulated the form and decoration of French models. A typical example is this lorgnette, which, when folded, looks like an iris in bloom.
