DESCRIPTION:

Here is a truly AMAZING offer. This is a rare pair of vintage Steampunk goggles created from a ressurected pair of WILLSON vintage driving goggles. As you can see, this particular pair has incredible COLBALT BLUE GLASS. This is the only pair like this we've EVER seen in the many years we've been selling goggles. Certainly a once in a lifetime find. We have sold the exact same style of Willson goggles, but not with this amazing blue glass ( http://www.etsy.com/transaction/32751178 ). Willson, of course, makes rock-solid goggles that withstand the test of time and this pair is a fantastic representation of that quality. Strong sturdy frames, rich supple leather and thick solid glass that can really take a beating. To this pair we'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. You will blow people away with the Steampunk look that these goggles create...

This pair features stunning blue tinted lenses and rich, brown leather side shields and leather beneath the bridge to protect your sniffer. This pair really has unique and exquisite good looks that will be the perfect compliment to your Steampunk wardrobe.

CONDITION:

LENSES:
The lenses on this pair of goggles are in pretty great condition, and as this is the most prominent feature of these goggles that is a lucky treat. There is a moderate amount of general surface scuffs that any pair of goggles or glasses acquire just through normal use, but they are all of the light surface variety. There are two miniscule nicks in the left lens and one on the right, but these are TINY. Other than that, there are no scratches or flaws that go into the glass. When you put these on there is nothing but crystal clear viewing at your disposal. Excellent, excellent quality glass, especially considering that these goggles are some 80-100 years old.

SIDE SHIELDS:
The leather side shields and leather beneath the bridge are also in fantastic condition. The side shields are particularly soft and supple, while the leather nose gaurd is a bit thicker for added protection but it is also soft and maleable. Aside from the normal creasing that occurs when the earpieces are closed, you would not know that these goggles are nearly a century old. Even the rivets are perfect.

FRAMES:
The frames are in great conditon. There are no structural flaws on these frames at all - they are as strong and solid as the day they were made. The silver may not gleam as brightly as it used to, but that just lets everyone know that you are wearing a genuine antique. Some minor spots and nicks appear on the frames around the lenses and on the bridge, but this is all pretty minimal stuff. For an antique, they are exquisite.

EARPIECES:
The earpieces are in excellent condition. They are stock-straight and have a black protective coating that is as fine as the day it was made. Amazing. There is even a small bead of metal at the end of each earpiece to keep the protective coating from sliding off. These goggles will obviously last several more lifetimes.

MEASUREMENTS:
The goggles measure approximately 130mm wide from hinge to hinge and the lenses measure approximately 53mm 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.

* 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.

If you are thinking, "Wow, I've never seen goggles with cobalt blue lenses like that before...", we were thinking the exact same thing as well. This is highly unusual and it may be years, maybe never that we find another pair like this. If you would like a pair of Steampunk goggles that will truly stand out in the crowd, this is the pair to buy. We only have this single pair, so don't end up kicking yourself saying you should've grabbed them, because someone else surely will. You can be sure that when you don these, you will be instantly transported to another era as this classic look cannot be equaled. They are utterly breathtaking...
