FREE UK & WORLDWIDE SHIPPING ON ALL ORDERS
A Fabulous Rare Pare Of Antique Early 19th Century Nickel Child’s Prescription Spectacles With Pseudo Hallmarks.
The term ‘pseudo hallmark’ is used for 18th, 19th and early 20th century marks which either resemble marks from other makers, towns, countries and assay offices or are complete fantasy marks.
Most silver pseudo-marks are found on items made outside Britain, in particular, during the 19th century in British colonies.
The ones on these spectacles were obviously made to look very similar to English hallmarks because these aren’t silver.
Condition is good, commensurate with age. A slight bend to the end of one of the arms, but very good overall condition.
