Victorian Eyewear
Antique eyewear for the eccentric eyewear lover.  Dark grey pince nez sunglasses.  These clip on the bridge of your nose.  Victorian era sunglasses for the steampunk genre.

Late 1800's dark grey oval pince nez sunglasses.
The glass lenses are brilliantly clear with the exception of 1 light scratch that doesn't interfere with vision.

Pince nez made popular with certain steampunk/goth genres by Bram Stoker's 'Dracular' as well as by Lawrence Fishburne in the movie 'Matrix' as 'Morpheus'.

Pince-nez are a style of spectacles which are supported without earpieces by pinching the bridge of the nose. Named by the French – pincer, to pinch, and nez, nose.
Pince-nez were used in Europe in the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries, 
more modern ones appeared in the 1840s and reached their peak popularity around 1880 to 1900. They faded by the 20's.

These are an exception to my return policy because of their delicate nature and therefore not returnable.

They do stay on the bridge comfortably,
as most pince nez bridges can be extremely tight and hard to adjust. 
I personally own several pairs and these are comfortable on me.

Please note, on a younger person with tight firm skin, these will not wrinkle your bridge like they did to mine.
