This is an early pair of eye glasses in its original case and made by Franklin & Co. Washington D. C.
The glasses are in excellent condition. The case covering is split and frayed in the back seam but overall the case looks good. It measures 5.5 x 2.5 inches.
Bifocals were invented by Benjamin Franklin, the first Postmaster General of the United States.
