Antique Gold and Turquoise Quizzing Glass



Unique Georgian quizzing glass or quizzer in three color 18K gold set with turquoise in a floral and leaf motif. The elaborate cannetille gold work is known for its intricate beads and coils and filigree. It became fashionable in England beginning in the late 18th century. Quizzers were worn by both men and women but surely this one was a woman's to be worn when dressing for an evening on the town. It measures 2 3/4" long by 1 1/2" wide. This quizzing glass is pictured in "Georgian Jewellery 1714-1830" by Ginny Redington Dawes with Olivia Collings on page 114 and the back cover.
