Glass Handheld Magnifying Monocle with Chain

Item: 001377

$9.95


SOLD OUT

Availability: Sold Out

Whether displaying genuine interest or upper-class disdain, peering through a hand-held monocle is the quintessential Victorian affectation.

Our brass rimmed hand monocle comes with matching 32 inch chain and black velvet storage pouch. Very similar to the simple, hand-held monocles of the mid-nineteenth century. Your choice of silver plated, with a 5X magnification, or gold plated, with a 3X magnification, to match your watch.

Please note that the magnifier measures 1.75 inches (44mm) in diameter and will not fit everyone as an eyepiece. Imported.

For in-eye monocles, consider our theatrical monocle available in two colors.

HE Monocle
The piece is beautiful. The glass is a bit large to be held on squint. The quality of image is OK handheld, but as monocles were/are normally used, the clarity of print could be better. As a decorative effect, definitely 5 star. Aesthetically perfect. Charles Laughton would have loved to carry it to court in Witness for the Prosecution.

Very Useful
I love it. The 5x magnification is perfect for examining things that require closer scrutiny, and it looks great as an addition to my Steampunk paraphernalia. Once again, you've knocked it out of the park.

Glass Handheld Magnifying Monocle with Chain
I loved this. It wasn't too expensive and is an interesting addition to a Victoriana outfit. Also useful for everyday shopping as, since eye surgery, I find it difficult to read small print on labels. A bit of glamour for a mundane task.

excellent gift!
The Monocle was a gift for my boyfriend and when he opened it the first thing he said was "why did you pay so much?" That was the best part since it cost so little and he loved it! It was exactly was he wanted. The shipping was truly amazing and I received it only seven days after order in plenty of time for his birthday. I had it wrapped and waiting for the big day! Very satisfied!!

This item just added that extra bit of lift to my steampunk outfit. It's magnification is awesome, especially if you want to study the whorls on your finger, the Ben Day dots on a cartoon, or if you want to just look at someone with sophisticated contempt.

marvelous service!
Silver monocle. It was beautiful, and speedy delivery, despite the late order right before Christmas. I will be ordering with them again.

Good for the money
I have ordered the monocle before, and was very happy with it. I recently ordered another for a friend. It arrived in a timely manner. The only quibble I had was that there appeared to be some rust or tarnish on the chain. I offered to have it exchanged, but my friend didn't seem to mind.

Although it looked cool, the chain was pretty cheap and broke within a few minutes. It didn't break on the clasp...it broke in the middle of the chain. Thirty bucks down the drain! (Editor note: This customer was contacted and the quality issue was resolved to her satisfaction.)

Well built but HUGE
Unless you are a cyclops don't plan on wearing this. However it is a great magnifier and handy to have around. It's great fun and best worn when playing the appropriate "monocle wearing" music.
