Both elegant and functional, our sparkling octagonal magnifier pendant recalls a fine example of a magnifying glass in The Met collection designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848-1933). Our celestial adaptation in oxidized rhodium plate is adorned with stars and glittering Swarovski® crystals. The glass magnifies 4 x power. The original piece by L.C. Tiffany was crafted in bronze and glass about 1905-20, likely part of a matching desk set. Depictions of magnifiers can also be seen in works of art throughout the Museum, from prints to paintings.
