A very unusual pair of antique eyeglasses - they have YELLOW lens! They are called "riding temple" because they hook securely over the ears and stay on while out riding (often the reason they would be tinted as well). This pair has a light yellow tint. The term "riding temple" is used to describe a style of glasses that was popular from about 1880 until it fell out of fashion in the 1920's. The frame is a lightweight metal and there is some light rust/discoloration visible. The ear-wires are intact and still work but have been bent, so the curves are not perfectly smooth. Personally, we think this just adds to their character and antique charm!!

These antique/vintage eyeglasses have round lens and are most assuredly unique and would be a fabulous addition to your collectibles and would look great as display objects d'arte!

If you have any questions, please convo us...we always respond promptly and love to hear from you.
