These pince nez dated from the late 1800s to the 1900s and were conveniently pinned in women's hair for easy access. These come in their original metal case covered in brown faux leather signed "The Harvey & Lewis Co. Opticians" which started in 1890 and still has locations all over Connecticut, USA.

The inner nose bridge is stamped "10K" (see photo #3) and the nose guards are made of a very thin textured plastic material. They are in excellent condition overall and could even be used today. Really a beautiful piece of vintage eyewear.
