Dark tinted glasses with found lenses, circa 1910s to 1920s.
Before the days of sunglasses, there were tinted glasses, believed by some to improve vision, but also worn for the sake of fashion by others. Some were worn as eye protection from the elements.
+++ Measurements +++
Approximately 5 5/8"" across the front. They have flexible ear wires to fit a range of sizes.
Each lens is approx 2 1/16" diameter.
+++ Condition +++
Great condition with some minor wear and patina to the frames. The ear wires are a little bent out of shape, but they are very flexible and this doesn't seem to affect wear.
The lenses are in good condition with perhaps some minor, faint scratching and one tiny chip on on edge, but nothing that I could see while wearing them.
These are wearable with care at your own risk (the lenses are antique and made of glass, and therefore do not meet modern safety regulations).
