Item Specification
Gently pre-owned, American Civil War era antique, condition. These are brass oval-framed spectacles with a "C" bridge and turnpin sides ending in small teardrop finials. The lenses are fully intact although there has been some repair done to the left front hinge. To date these would be to place them around 1830-1850 or so, and likely German. A fine example of spectacles from this era, and wonderful condition to be 150 to 175 years old or older. Given the age, I have not cleaned or attempted to retore them in any way and they are being listed exactly as I found them. A wonderful piece for anyone's collection! I am by no means an expert on antique spectacles. For this listing I sought after an expert for exact details on this pair of glasses. He was unable to offer any help on price, only specific details. Please feel free to send me an offer. Please see all included images, including those with the measuring tape. If you require exact measurements then please let me know and I'll do it at your request.
