Hard to find rimless tinted glasses circa 1890s-1900s with gold tone frames.
I have seen these referred to in catalogs as "smoked lens" glasses.
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.
The lenses are tinted but are not magnifying or prescription.
+++ Measurements +++
Approx 4.75" across the front from hinge to hinge.
+++ Condition +++
Great condition for their age and very wearable. The lenses are in good condition with perhaps some minor, faint scratching but nothing that I could see while wearing them. The metal frames have some patina.
These are wearable with care at your own risk (the lenses are made of glass, and therefore do not meet modern safety regulations).
