Vintage Style Magnifying Glasses Whether your workspace is the ship captain’s desk or your kitchen bench, We have collectable, antique-style magnifying glass that will look great adorning it. From our large, free-standing desk magnifying glasses with extendable arms, to the heavy chart readers (that also works as a paperweight), down to our hand-held, pocket-sized magnifying glasses. All of our magnifying glasses are handmade to a high quality finish by master artisans using often centuries old techniques and traditions. Look closely at each of one and you’ll note the fine details. Unique materials like horn are used in the handles. The typefaces are hand engraved in the edges of the copper framed lenses. As they are handcrafted, no two will be identical. Some natural variations and imperfections are inherent in the materials and construction processes, making each piece truly unique.
