Steampunk Goggles - Steampunk Jewelry and Accessories by edmdesigns http://www.edmdesigns.etsy.com

DESCRIPTION:

This is a very RARE and amazing pair of gorgeous Steampunk goggles created from a ressurected pair of WELSH vintage driving goggles. The unique feature of these goggles is obviously the outrageous RED TINTED LENES. These are extremely hard to find, and only rarely are we able to make them available.

The quality of these glasses is evident in the sturdy, durable frames. The bridge piece even has an etched scroll design that is unlike anything being manufactured today. Beautiful attention to detail. They have mesh side shields and I've added 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.

CONDITION:

LENSES:
The condition of these goggles is really great. The red tinted lenses are in exceptional condition.There are what I could only describe as water stains near the edges of the glass on each lens - these are barely noticeable an appear to be nothing more than a slight imperfection in the manufacturing process. They do not affect your viewing whatsoever when you are wearing these goggles and they are only visible upon close examination, and as mentioned this is only near the edge of the lenses. There is also a small (1/4 inch) hairline scratch on the inside of the left lens. This also does not disrupt viewing in any way, and as it is on the inside of the glass and not on the outside, it is also hardly visible. Otherwise these lenses are stunning, without the pitting, scratches and chips that are so often found in these vintage goggles that are some 80 - 100 years old.

FRAMES:
The frames are absolutely amazing. They look like they just came off of the assembly line. The one and only flaw is that the right nose guard has been replaced, but it is rock-solid and poses no disadvantage to these spectacular frames other than it is not the original. Everywhere else these frames are like brand new.

MESH SIDE SHIELDS:
The mesh side shields are in the same mint, showroom condition as the frames. They have the original shape and contours as the day they were made. The frames around the mesh and the mesh itself is perfect. Yet again a pretty outstanding example of rare antique driving goggles.

EARPIECES - ARMS:
The earpieces are also bla, bla, bla. There is not much to say as they are also perfect. This pair of goggles does not appear to have been worn, as the earpieces are stock-straight and do not look like they have ever been adjusted.
* PLEASE NOTE: This pair of earpieces has a brown protective coating that is not shown in the photos above, and this protective coating is also in mint/perfect condition and provides extra comfort and durability.

MEASUREMENTS:
The goggles measure approximately 130mm wide from hinge to hinge and the lenses measure approximately 49mm 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.

* NOTE: This pair of goggles comes with the original all-metal case. The case itself has its own beauty. It is painted in a dull, olive drab remeniscent of WWI military equipment. This case will add an extra bit of cool when you want to slide these goggles out of your pocket to don them against the ravages of the sun. Your friends will be jealous and your vintage goggles will stay in like new condition...

* Please remember, 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.

As stated, the quality, rarity and condition of these goggles cannot be equaled. Don't miss this unique opportunity to have some of the most gorgeous goggles available anywhere. A striking retro look by anyone's standards. The absolute topper to any Steampunk wardrobe!
