Victorian Papier Mache Eyeglass Case, circa 1860
Decoratively inlaid with mother of pearl on the perimeter, bordered on either side by silver and with a centre cartouche of silver, awaiting a monogram. The inside of the spectacle case is lined in its original garnet velvet intended to cushion the spectacles. This is ideal for the wire reading glasses available today, lovely to use on a desk or a bedside table.
