Dating from the mid 20s to mid 30s, these vintage eyeglasses feature round lens, one piece lens component with curved self molded nose rest and curved arms. Very Downton Abbey / Steam punk styling.
They are 4 - 3/4 inch across the front. The fronts are 1 - 5/8 inch high. Arms are 4 inches from front to where the curve begins. The curve (fitting over the ear) is another inch. Best for a small to medium face.
The arms are comparable to a small adult size. The front is about 1/2 inch more narrow than my modern glasses.
The celluloid plastic is dark tortoise; almost black.
The round glass lens have a prescription in them. The left lens is very loose. I would imagine you would remove the lenses and either have sun glasses inserted or your own prescription.
A profession optometrist would need to do that.
They look very cool with no lens. Bows and frames are straight and strong.
More eyeglasses are listed at Toinette's.
