These have a celluloid mock tortoiseshell covering over brass frames with flexible brass arm pieces. They measure 4 5/8" across the front from arm extension tip to tip. The lens frame is 1.5/8"' wide and 1 1/2" deep. Nose bridge gap is 1/2". These will fit and adult as this old style of spectacles were narrow on the face but have the flexible arms and ear extensions. There is a date on the case which looks like the year 7.10. 31...so Art Deco Period. Case is worn and scruffy but glasses are pretty good for age as per the pics. Marked on inner nose bridge as... H CO (20).
