A rare pair of circa late 1700s, early 1800 Eyeglasses. The Eyeglasses have a hand forged iron frame and hand blown magnifying lenses. They have the extended ear pieces to accommodate a wig. The eyeglasses are in an early steel case. I don't know if the case and lenses are original, they are very early nonetheless. The eyeglasses are in good overall condition. The frames are intact but have surface rust as you expect of an item of this age. the lenses are heavily scratched but you can still see through them, see photos. The Eyeglasses would make a great addition to an antique Optical collection, they are rare and wonderful.
