The gallery glass is a large and impressive type of magnifying glass, the lens of a particular focal point that allows for the gentle magnification of a work of art from a considerable and varied distance, thus the collector or connoisseur is able to look in closer detail at a large hanging picture or standing sculpture. Popular during the Regency period, English circa 1820.
