The beautiful vintage Optical or Trial lens has a very different tab.. The silver finish has a clear lens inside.. not frosted areas on this lens.. I have only seen a couple of these lenses in the years I have been acquiring them for resale.. very neat lens..
Could be made into a pendant, with a jump ring attached at the top then a leather cord, ribbon or chain added.. measures about 1 1/2" and with the tab about 1 3/4"
If you are into steampunk jewelry, goth type jewelry or want to display it in a picture with an old hankie or family treasure..
This would be perfect for an altered art project.
If you want to see what others are making from these type lenses do a google search for "trial optical lens necklace then click on images" there are some gorgeous treasures there!
What you see here is what you are buying.. From a non smoking home..
