Vintage 14k yellow gold San Francisco cable car with articulated parts, the driver moves back and forth with the wheels. Although there is more to this charm than meets the eye (no pun intended!). Put the Stanhope lens right up to your eye and you can see a microscopic illustration of the Golden Gate Bridge!
A Stanhope lens is a miniature convex lens used to view miniature photographic images. The use of Stanhope lenses in jewelry was popular in Victorian Sentimental jewelry. Most commonly images were of loved ones, religious prayers and destinations, however, sometimes images were of a more risqué nature.
