Peep Show Ring

$1,250.00
About Details

In 1859, the first micro-photographic lens was patented. It was called the Stanhope, and it was a HUGE fad in the Victorian era. The miniature lens was hidden inside all kinds of regular objects: pens, pipes, needle cases, thimbles... but the way to keep a precious secret close at hand (literally) was to stash it in in a ring.  At first glance, you wouldn't notice there's anything special about a Stanhope ring. That's a good thing, because you wouldn't want people to know what a perv you are. Hold the ring up to the light and peer through the curved glass: hello naked lady! We've spent years developing this ring, collaborating with one of America's last makers of micro-lens technology. Choose a pic from our vintage porn archive or supply your own. Alternative name for this ring: SEND NUDES.
