Reserved for Shun.

Antique eye glasses, bifocals no less, and the case. 12K GF top frame and sides, and on the back of the nose piece, the frames are marked "B&L 1/10 12K GF (and then a box with the number 7 (or 2)". Both arm pieces on the inside are also marked in the same way except there is a series of numbers instead of the box with a number inside.
Very attractive, and neat to see a pair of bifocals. Some scratches, not many and noticeable in the bright light, and the glass is clear and thick. Lenses are secure to the frames, and the arms and wrap around ear sections are straight, no bends or breaks, and secure to the front frame. There is etching on the nose bridge and the side arms, and on the gold tabs that hold the lenses near the nose pieces.

The two yellowy vanilla colored nose tabs are secure and wiggle as they should, and in tact, very nice. These glasses lay flat when set on table. A very nice pair of old bifocals.

Measurement across the front from side to side across the lenses is 4 1/8". The sides are both 4" as measured from the front to the beginning of the curve of the wrap around ear section.

The case is black with a lined design on the outside. The inside still has its soft lining although worn, and no tears. Still snaps open and shut easily and with a strong snap! Beautiful pair of old glasses with their case.

Old eye wear for a new bifocal look.
