Wonder, intrigue, curiosity and discovery – qualities that are so often missing from our busy lives these days.

That was before Authentic Models. They’re interested in appealing to the mind as well as to fun!

Discovery. Sometimes it’s not all about conquering mountains or hacking your way through unexplored jungles…sometimes it’s the smaller things in life that provide fascination. Like the hallmark on your antique jewellery, or the faded face of an ancient coin, or the wings of a butterfly.

The Victorians were absolutely fascinated with the natural world (Charles Darwin published The Origin of the Species in the 1800s), and were slowly creating the technology to study it even closer. Authentic Models have painstakingly created a Discovery Glass that harks back to the Victorian Era, hand-tooled from brass, and able to magnify its focus by up to three times its normal size. It even folds away into a matching brass case.

Next time somebody asks “oh dear, what kind of spider is that!?” you can happily whip out your Discovery Glass and tell them!

Discovery Glass features:
  • Designed in the USA.
  • Hand-tooled from solid instrument brass.
  • Provides 2.5 times to 3 times magnification.
  • Folds in to a matching brass case.
  • Gift packed in an Authentic Models box.

Diameter: 5.6cm.
