This magnifying glass comes with a decorative dark wood box to house the brass viewing glass and leather bound handle. 

The earliest evidence of "a magnifying device, a hi lens forming a magnified image," dates back to 424 BC Aristophanes "lens" is a glass globe filled with water. Roger Bacon described the properties of magnifying glass in 13th-century England.
