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

DESCRIPTION:

This is an truly fantastic pair of Steampunk goggles in SPECTACULAR CONDITION that was created from a ressurected pair of AMERICAN OPTICAL vintage driving goggles. These have wire mesh side shields and an excellent bridge with a well-made nose rest that adjusts its position to your nose automatically - very cool. If you look at the third photo, you will see a metal nose rest centered underneath the bridge. This nose rest pivots (similar the head of a razor) so that it will adjust instantly to the shape and angle of your nose.

This is an extremely well-designed and high quality pair of goggles. The side shields and ear pieces are collapsible, so you can fold them up and carry them in a breast pocket. They have mesh side shields and I've added removable double magnifier loupes 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:
These goggles are in excellent condition. The lenses show near mint condition glass nearly unheard of since manufacturing techniques 80 - 100 years ago were not what they are now. Nonetheless, nothing is visible while wearing these glasses. The view is clean and clear. Aside from that, there are no scratches, scuffs, etc. These goggles look like new.

FRAMES:
The frames are in absolute MINT condition. There is no wear, pitting or issues of any kind. These look showroom-new. The fresh, gleaming silver is spectacular and completely belie the antique nature of this beautiful specimen. The frames around the lenses are deep, giving them exceptional character and an undeniably Steampunk look.

SIDE SHIELDS:
The mesh side shields are also in equally like-new condition. They have the original shape as it was created from the factory, a well as the original gleam and flawless mesh. This is as perfect a pair as one could ever hope for.

EARPIECES - ARMS:
The ear wires are likewise extremely good. They have a protective coating for added durability and comfort. The ear pieces were manufactured with a small metal bead on the end so that the protective coating on the ear wires does not slip down (which otherwise commonly happens with these types of goggles). These earpieces are exceptionally strong though they still can be easily adjusted to any position for comfort.

* PLEASE NOTE: The protective coating on the earpieces of the pair being offered may be dark brown or ivory though the photo shows a pair with a dark green coating. All other aspects of these fine goggles are identical to what is shown.

MEASUREMENTS:
The goggles measure approximately 132mm wide from hinge to hinge and the lenses measure approximately 51mm 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.

All in all this is an amazing example of vintage driving goggles in absolutely MINT condition that is rarely found, with excellent design features that will make this the most coveted piece of Steampunk that you own.
