Part Number: HB110
Availability: Sorry Recently Sold!
This early antique turned bone spyglass monocular features a stanhope with a multi-view of 12 areas of interest at the Palace of Versailles. The stanhope is one of the clearest and finest quality views you will find. The main title is "VERSAILLES" and the twelve tiny microphoto images are all individually titled in French as follows:

La Chapelle
Bassin de Neptune
Galerie des Batailles
Gran Trianon
Crotte d'Apollon
Bassin de Latone
Petit Trianon
Bassin D'Apollon
Voiture de Sacre

The monocular measures 22mm (tall) x 7mm (diameter). It's a great piece for any collection and especially nice accessory for a 19th century porcelain bisque doll.
