19th century objects

Antique cigarette case

Silver cigarette case presented to our donor's uncle, a Catholic priest. Engraved cover has a flower pattern and inscription in Russian 'From his Excellency Emir Bucharski'.


Pair of spectacles with a handle. The lorgnette was usually used as a piece of jewelry rather than to enhance vision. They were popular in the 19th century.
