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.

        Nice but arrived damaged

        Had to return product due to damage during shipment. It didn't seem to be padded enough for shipping. Need to see replacement.

          Best Uses

          • Handy For Old Eyes

          Comments about Celtic Pewter Magnifier:

          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.

              I ordered this thinking it would be a handy desktop item in my office. I find that it's so useful - as well as so pleasing to look at - that I carry it with me in my purse when I travel. It's extremely helpful in reading the fine print on maps!

                My husband is a cartographer. The family geneology is Scottish and Irish. He was educated to draw maps by hand. Now, maps are in the computer era. I bought it as a present for home. He wants to return to hand drawing maps in his spare time. Than you for a wonderful surprise gift.
