Fine, Hand-Crafted Magnifier
With Exotic Wood Handle
Leopold A. Frilot [Baton Rouge, 2011]
Large Hand Magnifier.
10 ½ inches
The lens features a 4” viewing area with 3X magnification and is fastened to the wooden handle with antiqued brass hardware; overall length is 10 ½ inches.
An elegant instrument, exclusively crafted for us by Louisiana master woodworker, Leopold A. Frilot.
The grain patterns on the wooden handles are all natural; no stains have been added to any of the woods, just sanding, waxing and polishing. An excellent instrument for examining old maps.
The illustrated magnifier is made with Cocobolo, native to Mexico.
