Sterling silver ‘Spur’ magnifying glass by Hermès, Paris
Price Code: SOLD
A fine Sterling silver desk magnifying glass with a swept handle, terminating in a stylized scalloped spur. The deep, domed lens is set within a shaped silver surround, signed Hermès Paris and bears French silver mark to the edge. Very unusual in Sterling silver, as the majority of Hermès’ desk items of this period were made in silver plate, this would surely be an elegant addition to any desk. The glass is complete with a bespoke Hermès pigskin presentation case. French, circa 1930s.
Length overall: 5 inches (13 cm).
