1920's round metal rimmed spectacles with fitted sunglass clip ons. Pre-owned.
As offered with their original magnifying prescription glass lenses in +3.00 strength (or without lenses, your choice) 
Plus a pair of fitted pre-owned sunglass clips with blue glass lenses from the same era.

The 'silver' plating is in excellent condition and they haven't lost their shine.
I'll use the word 'silver' lightly cause I don't know if they're nickel, rhodium, steel, or silver content.
They're about 100 years old. 
High bridge with self adjusting swivel celluloid champagne pearl nose pads.
Will accommodate most average prescriptions and bifocal scripts as well.

Lenses on the clip ons are in excellent condition as well, non Rx, with very few light scratches that can be seen in front shot.
The pattern on the rims is chased, with very little tarnish of the plating that really doesn't affect their coolness.

Currently the lenses are approximately +3.00 magnifying prescription which anyone who wears very strong reading glasses would be able to wear. The lenses are concave glass in excellent practically 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 ship just the frame with the sunclips. 

Lenses will be included with your purchase if you choose 'Reading Glasses'.

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