ORIGINAL EYEGLASSES 1.5+

  Here's a nice pair of original eyeglasses. Especially if all you need is 1.5 + reading glasses. I'm guessing at the strength but I use 1.5 + and they work great for me. I bet I'm pretty close. The frames are blued steel. The legs are curved as seen in the photo. The condition of both frame and lenses are very good. These glasses will fit your typical sized guy or gal. The width of the eye glasses from ear piece to ear piece being 4 inches. The length of the legs are 5 inches. They are not the "screw type" frames so you have to use these just as they are.

ORIGINAL OVAL EYEGLASSES 1.5+

  I sell a lot of eyeglass frames to theaters, they do not want the glass in the frame as this often will causes an unwanted glare as the actor moves about. This pair of glasses has a cracked and broken lense. Normally I would have just removed them and sell them without. But - I was thinking - What about using them in your impression just as they are with the "back story" of how you broke them and just how difficult it is to get glasses with the war going on. Just a thought. I'll be happy to remove the glass if you so request.

  This pair of original eyeglasses has the most sought after strength in readers. I'm guessing at the strength but I use 1.5 + and they are perfect for me. The frames are nickle over steel. The condition of the frames are good to very good. They fit average sized guy. The width of the eye glasses from ear piece to ear piece being 4 1/4 inches and the length of the legs is just over 5 inches. They are NOT the "screw type" frames. Lenses can not be changed.

ORIGINAL OVAL EYEGLASSES

  Here are a nice pair of original eyeglasses. I'm not going to attempt to guess the strength of these but they are strong. The frames are blued steel and the legs although short will still work for a grown man. They would work best for a smaller person, a medium size guy or just about any gal.
  They would work wonderfully for a prop just as they are. Move them down to the end of your nose and just look over the top of them. You get the "look" without the expense.
  The width of the eye glasses from ear piece to ear piece being 4 1/4 inches. The legs measure 4 3/8 inches long. They are the "screw type" frames so should you desire to change the lenses to your prescription it can be done by any good eye doctor or tech.

1859 EYEGLASS TIN CASE




  First let me say that this case is not marked. Many of them have a patent date of 1859 stamped on them but many more are stamped with the 1863 pat. date. The construction techniques of this case lead me to beleive that it is one of the earlier ones.

For every 200 pairs of glasses I buy I find about one of these cases and they are getting harder and harder to come by espeacially in this condition. This one has the original blue felt lining. It snaps tightly shut which is not always the case. I've never found a pair of typical oval style straight leg glasses that would not fit in one of these cases. It is a little scary the first time you put your glasses into a case like this as you must apply a little more pressure than normal to make the legs conform to the case but that is just the way they fit.
  As you can see from the photo there is a small bit of the matte finish misssing from this case. If I were going to keep it for myself I would darken that up with a little varnish. Overall a very good quality case.
