Steampunk Goggles - Steampunk Jewelry and Accessories by edmdesigns http://www.edmdesigns.etsy.com

DESCRIPTION:

Here is one of the most AMAZING pairs of Steampunk goggles we have ever made available. This pair is vintage driving goggles are so cool! This totally unique pair of goggles has two-tone lenses in Cobalt Blue glass and clear glass. The concept, as you can imagine, was to have tinted glass on the upper portion of the goggles for blocking out the sun's strong rays, but still allowing normal viewing straight ahead or down at the road. Fortunate for us, this design proved not only sensible, but also happens to make one of the coolest looking pair of Steampunk goggles the world has ever seen.

These goggles have perfectly round lenses for an exquisitely vintage appearance. They also have gorgeous leather side shields and leather covering the bridge for beyond stunning good looks. I've added removable double magnifier loops for an over-the-top Steampunk look. Some people choose to attach the magnifying loupes permanently, but we'll leave this up to you. If you are looking for a pair of goggles that rockets you to the front of Steampunk fashion, then look no further. These are beyond cool and absolutely unique. Please keep in mind that these two tone goggles are extremely rare. In the many years and hundreds of goggles we have sold, this is only the second pair we have ever seen. Luckily, we also happened to find another gorgeous pair with green and clear lenses - you can find them here:

CONDITION:

LENSES:
The lenses are in phenomenal condition. Looking through a magnifier I could see only 2 or 3 tiny, hairline surface scuffs and a minuscule speck or two - to my eyes the lenses look brand new. No scratches, pitting, discoloration, just smooth beautiful surfaces everywhere. To find these rare lenses and have them turn out to be in mint condition is truly a dream. If you have been holding out for the most incredible Steampunk goggles you could find, you don't have to hesitate as these definitely fit the bill. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

FRAMES:
The frames are equally amazing condition. There is some light surface wear on the frames around the lenses, but it is very, very minimal and far less than you would anticipate with a pair of goggles that are about 100 years old. The silver throughout is gorgeous, it produces a bright gleam that will catch people's attention from across a crowded room. The frames are also of the phenomenal quality that you have come to expect from antique driving glasses from this era. They are extremely solid, giving you confidence that these will be around for another 100 years. Paired with the thick glass of the lenses, there is no doubt that these goggles are ready for anything...

SIDE SHIELDS:
The leather on these goggles is what really take this pair to the next level. They have the perfect combination of color, aged good looks and supple flexibility. As you can see from the photos, these are a beautiful chocolate brown. They have just the right amount of wear, with a subdued, slightly faded appearance that lets everyone know that you are wearing the genuine article. The leather is soft to the touch and very supple, with some standard crease marks from the glasses being folded in the closed position. The leather over the bridge matches that of the side shields. Same rich, faded hue, with almost no signs of wear except for a tiny nick in the leather at the bottom of the nose bridge. The leather of the bridge can be removed via a small snap - this snap does have some age and pitting, but looks great - and you can wear the goggles without the leather on the bridge one day, and with the leather the next, it's up to you.

EARPIECES - ARMS:
The earpieces are all but perfect - straight and strong with no issues to mention.

MEASUREMENTS:
The goggles measure approximately 135mm wide from hinge to hinge and the lenses measure approximately 53mm high, including the frames - please consider the dimensions when selecting any pair of goggles, and if you have a question please don't hesitate to ask.

* Please remember, these goggles feature professional frames and the lenses can be removed and replaced with custom prescription lenses or lenses with a different tint by any reputable optician.

If it hasn't been made painfully clear, these goggles go far beyond unique are rare. You cannot buy these for money - they just simply aren't available anywhere. Add to that the fact that these are in PHENOMENAL condition, and you have an opportunity that is unlikely to ever come around again. Take advantage of these and treat yourself to a genuine one-of-a-kind. You'll be so glad you did. They will immediately set you apart from anyone, anywhere absolutely no one but NO ONE will have goggles like these. These are an absolute MUST HAVE to complete any Steampunk ensemble!
