These are wonderful! They're probably a +2 or perhaps +2.5 magnification, so a little too strong for me or I'd be keeping these. The ear piece is exactly what I need. I get tired of having any weight of reading glasses on my bridge of my nose - how perfect it would be to just let them drop and dangle when I'm not reading. And still find them when I take it up again (smile). Chain and ear loop test at 14k, and the frame tests 18k. Gorgeous and stylish for today! Full measurements noted on the photos. I bought these ages ago in France, but I can't find a French eagle's head on that 18k gold mount, so unsure where they were made.
Very good to excellent condition throughout. No breaks, no scratches on the lenses, no cracks on outer frame and no bends or damage to the 18k and 14k gold parts, either. Splendid and unique - you'll love wearing these or just resting them atop a stack of leather bound antique books as a vignette, home or office.
NOTE: We have a wonderful selection/collection of 14-18k gold spectacles, some in cases. If you wish to have us help you find them, let me know. They're all offered separately, and some come with cases. This set, alas, hasn't a case. Perhaps you'll pick out one of our elegant cigar cases to use as your spectacles case? Can help you with that, too. Just ask.
Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time.
