Take a closer look at maps, books, and prints with this 3X magnifier in a handsome Celtic swirl pewter case. The design evokes ancient Celtic patterns, with three counterclockwise swirls—representing the Holy Trinity and referring to the blessing a'deasail, or "good luck," which contemporary Celtic artists often use. Crafted by a Birmingham, England, company that has been making pewter since 1797.


Crafted in England. 2 1/2" diameter.

        I ordered one for myself and one for a gift, believing that the size and weight would be suitable for carrying in my purse. In fact, the glass is much to bulky and heavy for such a use. I urged my sister-in-law to return hers. I kept mine, but wish I hadn't. It sits in a drawer.

              Comments about Celtic Pewter Magnifier:

              I wanted a magnifier for those times I need to enlarge the fonts on Menus, or read Theatre Programs. I would have appreciated a stronger lens so I could see the tiny print on some packaging when I shop. My vision is pretty good, but the label requirements for small packages makes it impossible to read some of them. I only need glasses for my computer, so I just keep this precious magnifier in my purse.

                          I have used an old, scratched magnifying glass on a stick for years, and, felt that its' time had come. Coincidentally, this little number went on sale at the NG website. I use it for anything that comes with fine print produced, obviously, for teenagers. It is handy for reading model numbers on any number of electronic components. It has a nice, weighty feel to it, and, neither looks, nor, feels cheap. The celtic design looks attractive on my desk, and, it puzzles those who would know of its' purpose.

                          Unique magnifier. Glass protected by silver case. Easy to use and fits in pocket (I frequent auctions).
                          I do wish it was a tad thinner, but then it might loose some magnification qualities.
