Early Folding Brass Spectacles with Original Lenses, 19th CenturyEarly Folding Brass Spectacles with Original Lenses, 19th CenturyEarly Folding Brass Spectacles with Original Lenses, 19th Century

This is an intriguing pair of early spectacles. They feature circular rimmed lenses and arms which each fold twice, terminating in a pierced oval section that would have sat near the temple. When extended these have a bend so that they would fit the shape of the head. It is possible that these may have an Oriental origin. These would fit very nicely into a chatelaine or standard spectacle case. They are in very good condition for age and would make a lovely addition to an optical collection. Closed width 4.5 ins (11.5cm). Weight 38 grams. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $28.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
