Literature: By the 19th century well-dressed ladies wore 'long chains' from which were suspended watches or lorgnettes, as well as lockets and other useful implements. A lorgnette is, quite simply, a pair of spectacles mounted on a handle. The precursor to modern opera glasses, lorgnettes were a common sight during the 19th century at the theatre as well as the opera.
