** UNIQUE DESIGNS IN STEAMPUNK INDUSTRIAL JEWELRY **

This is a one-time offering for a spectacular (no pun intended) looking pair of vintage Steampunk goggles created from a ressurected pair of vintage driving goggles. They come with 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. This pair features tinted lenses and dark chestnut colored leather side shields for a fantastic retro Steampunk look. Although there is no manufacturer's name to be found, the quality of this pair of goggles is remarkable. The frames are extremely solid, the leather is thick and beautiful and the lenses are very thick and ready to stand up to serious challenges. Also, this pair really has exquisite good looks that will be the perfect finishing touch to any Steampunk wardrobe.

The lenses of this pair are decent, there are significant scuffs and a few scratches on the right lens. The left lens is quite the opposite, with no scuffs and a few tiny nicks here and there, although there are about three hairline scratches in the middle of the lens. Even with the flaws, they are quite wearable - indeed I am wearing them now as I write this and they are uber-comfy.

The frames are gorgeous, with the typical scuffs to be found on a pair of goggles that are 80 - 100 years old, but there is no loss of the stunning shine of the silver finish. They just look fantastic, with a great gleam. The top bridge has a slight (I mean very slight) undulation in the otherwise straight bar across the top. It can easily be straightened.

The earpieces are virtually new, with no issues to mention. They have a spiral texture that begins about half way back that makes them springy and flexible, providing a very comfortable fit that adapts to your size immediately. A very nice design feature.

The leather side shields are fantastic, with a rich brown color, virtually no creasing and the rivets holding them to the frames appear to be perfect. They feel thick and sturdy, but still with plenty of flexability, ready to provide years and years of wear.

This is really one fine pair of goggles and I truly wish I knew the manufacturer as I would try to find more of this style, but as it stands this is the only pair like it I have, so grab them up before they're gone. You will be soooo glad you did...

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. The goggles measure approximately 135mm wide from hinge to hinge and the lenses measure approximately 52mm 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.
