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 hue in direct light, and a dark brownish auburn in low light. 

The celluloid covers are in excellent condition having maintained their luster for about 100 years. 
1920's round 10K gold filled spectacles with auburn celluloid rims. Pre-owned.
As offered with their original magnifying prescription glass lenses of about +2.00-+2.50 strength. I typically wear +3.00-3.50 for close up viewing,  I found these perfect for clearing up my distance,  but not strong enough to read my cell.

The surface of the gold metal is in excellent condition and they haven't lost their shine. 
Though I could have polished the outer temples with a light cloth but didn't want to risk the possibility of the color changing even though gold filled is not like plated...
plates wear off with use.  Gold filled takes a lot longer to fade,  but does eventually wear.
These are in fantastic condition.  Ready for your own Rx.
They're about 100 years old. 
Saddle bridge marked 10k GF
Will accommodate most average prescriptions and bifocal scripts as well.

The lenses are flat lightweight glass,  practically scratch free. 
I found this pair extremely comfortable to wear, the frame isn't pressing against my eyelashes as some coiled temples tend to do if they're not long enough. 

You won't be disappointed. 1 pair available.
