Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.
Very early steel eyeglass frames fitted with deep gray non prescription glass lenses have oval shaped frames and a rounded saddle nose bridge, with intricately wrought, edged woven metal screen side shields that fit securely in the ocular cavity.

They have long, flexible metal temples that fold ninety degrees from the hinge by a fine metal rivet. Each side shield sits securely in place by a thickening on the temple, and there is a smooth steel droplet at the end of each the temple. They are in amazing condition for their age, with as found dark gray patina.

It is possible to have the lenses changed to modern prescription lenses with the expertise of an optician who is experienced in fitting antique eyewear.
