eyeglasses rimless vintage 1940s

This pair of vintage rimless eyeglasses, black case with blue velour interior, and cleaning cloth are in great condition. There is one tiny chip of the glass on the bottom of one lens. You have to look for it.

The cleaning cloth says:

. . . don't squint

Cruxite Lenses
reduce glare. . .
Columbian Optical Company
L.F. Taylor, Pres.
1325-4th Ave. MA. 1941

On the back of the case it says:

Columbian Optical Co.
Seattle 1315 4th Ave
Portland 145 6th ST

I'm assuming this pair is from 1941 and was paired with the cleaning cloth. Fits the era. In 1921, rimless eyeglasses with nosepads were introduced, and octagonal-shaped lenses became popular for the next several decades.

There are 2 missing screws on the frame, however the lens are secure to the frame.

If you need more photos or other information, just let me know.

Thanks for looking!
