3 Pairs of Victorian Spectacles with Tinted Lenses

3 Pairs of Victorian Spectacles with Tinted Lenses

SKU: RJ00289
£75.00Price

During the late 18th and all through the 19th century, spectacles were mostly made with a metal rim extending from around the lense to behind the ear. Before the NHS was invented, a trip to the opticians was quite an expensive thing, and maybe the reason why these glasses are still to be found is that people would pass on their glasses to another member of the family, albeit not the correct perscription, it was better than non at all, if you couldnt afford your own. In wealthy households these spectacles would sometimes be made with gold or silver rims.

 

3 Pairs of spectacles each with tinted lenses, One pair has wire arms to fit around the ears, the other two pairs are springed to fit on to the bridge of the nose.  The price is for all 3 pairs of spectacles.

 

All are in good condition

 

Dimensions: wired spectacles 12 cm wide. Spring spectacles 9cm wide
