Suited for a narrow to average sized face.

The Windsor style was first introduced in 1880 and remained popular until after WWI.  Windsors came in silver,  roman steel, gold filled, gold,  and nickle.  Often the lens rims and temples were covered with celluloid in black, burgundy,  tortoise and blonde. This pair reflects an auburn red hue in direct light,  and a dark brownish red in low light.  The celluloid covers are in excellent condition having maintained their luster for about 100 years.  

Saddle bridge and frame is gold filled (tested) and will accomodate most average prescriptions.  Currently the lenses are approximately +3.50 magnifying prescription which anyone who wears very strong reading glasses would be able to wear.  The lenses are thin,  flat glass in excellent scratch free condition.  I found this pair extremely comfortable to wear,  the frame isn't pressing against the front of my face as some coiled temples tend to do if they're not long enough.  

If you're purchasing these for your own prescription,  choose 'No Lenses' in the selector and I will remove the lenses for you. Otherwise you wouldn't be abe to see yourself in the mirror because of the distortion the current lenses will create.  Lenses won't be included with your final purchase.

Unmarked,  but certainly worth of the Windsor, Amercian Optical, Oliver Goldsmith or Shuron name.  You won't be disappointed.  1 pair available.
