Antique Optometrist Trial Lens Set from the early 19th Century in the original box and marked
"Bausch & Lomb Optical Company Rochester N.Y. U.S.A.".

This set is almost complete with 236 lenses in total. Included are Spherical, Cylindrical concave and convex lens and in addition a set of "Miscellaneous" lens.

The lens are sitting in the original rosewood tray which can be removed and is intact. The box is lines in royal blue velvet. The wood box itself is worn and rustic but has a beautiful patina.

This is truly an amazing set which was purchased at an Estate Sale for a wonderful collector with a beautiful eye.

Vintage, is well, old and has traveled through time. The items I present have been loved and have their own stories to tell. Most have natural occurring flaws, which in most cases add to the visual interest. I do my best to point these out for each item but if you are looking for perfection you probably won’t find that here in my shop unless otherwise indicated.
I ship just about anywhere so if you are outside the USA convo me with an address and I will reserve it for you while I get you an actual quote. I will ship the most economical route but if you have a preference, please let me know prior to payment. Any shipping costs over $2.00 will be credited to you. I love to combine shipping and I LOVE to use recycled packaging.
