24carat gold-plated magnifying glass featuring artwork by Karadin, from the Sherlock Holmes Seasonal Calendar featuring an image of Modern Sherlock Holmes in a Victorian setting.
Set in Victorian Baker Street, the image features symbols from the Victorian Language of Flowers, Sherlock holds a Chrysanthemum for Autumn, which personifies Truth, and a Plane Tree in the background signifies Genius.
The magnifying glass measures 6 7/8 inches long from top to bottom. The glass is 2 1/2 inches wide with a rim that is 1/2 inch thick. Heavy and finely balanced, a metal tang goes all the way through the polymer clay handle, which is sealed with a hand-rubbed luster wax finish.
