Item details

Vintage from the 1940s


metal, glass, cotton strap, celluloid

These great safety glasses or driving goggles have mesh screening on the sides to protect the wearer, and tortoise-look padding around the eyes (it feels like hard plastic or celluloid). May have been used for safety glasses in the workshop, but would work great as aviator or motorcycle goggles.

They measure about 5 3/4” wide as is, although the nose piece/chain is adjustable. The glass lenses are 2” diameter and are marked with an 'S' in a circle. The glasses are 1 3/4” deep at the side guards. They are in overall good condition with some scratches and wear as expected with use. The head strap does not seem to be elastic, more like a cotton band that can be adjusted via the sliding adjuster.

Shipping policies

I ship via UPS, FedEx, and USPS , and try to determine which method is most economical.

I try to use recycled packaging whenever possible, while insuring that your purchase will reach you safely. Please contact me prior to shipment if this is a problem.

I will combine shipping charges on multiple purchases. If a combined amount is not already specified, contact me and I'll provide an estimate. I refund any shipping overages greater than $2.
