** UNIQUE DESIGNS IN STEAMPUNK INDUSTRIAL JEWELRY **

DESCRIPTION:

This is one of those rare opportunities that we always hope for but seldom get to realize. We have made it clear on previous occasions how rare it is to find these gorgeous, green-tinted goggles. When you couple that occurrence with the chances of finding them in PHENOMENAL condition, it really makes you appreciate how exceptional a find like this truly is. If you didn't follow all of that, this pair of goggles is really, really rare. They are breathtaking and very hard to let go, so if you have been wanting these goggles, this is the pair to grab.

These are a gorgeous pair of Steampunk goggles created from a resurrected pair of vintage American Optical Ful-Vue driving goggles. The unique feature of these goggles is obviously the outrageous GREEN TINTED LENSES. These are extremely hard to find, and nowhere will you find them in the incredible EXQUISITE CONDITION being offered here.

They come with 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. This is a very unique pair made by one of the finest names in eyewear. This pair has the both green tinted lenses and tinted collapsible side shields that gives them an uber cool and unique Steampunk look. The frame is stamped as model "AO21 Fulvue" on the bridge. Antique American Optical frames are some of the finest around, and this pair is no exception. These glasses are rock solid - it would take a lot to destroy these goggles. The glass is very thick and ready for anything. This is a tremendous pair of goggles. Grab these before they are gone.

CONDITION:

LENSES:
Okay, I am going to repeat myself a lot because these goggles are so immaculate that most of the things I say will have to do with how great they are, but here it goes... The lenses on this pair of goggles are nothing short of amazing. I have scanned the glass both inside and out for scratches, scuffs and pitting and the surface is unlike anything I have ever seen in vintage goggles. There is the Hallmark "AO" on the lenses and in perfect condition. The are smoooooooth and dreamy. And as mentioned, everything else is pristine and flawless - nearly a miracle for a pair of goggles that date back almost 100 years.

THESE ARE BEYOND PERFECTLY MINT IN EVERY WAY !

FRAMES:
There are two aspects of these frames worth mentioning. Firstly, the frames on these glasses are in excellent condition. The frame is stamped as model AO21 Fulvue on the bridge. The second aspect worth mentioning is the outstanding quality and exquisite style of these highly sought after green tinted glasses. American Optical was known for creating the highest quality goggles and glasses, and this pair is a testament to their legacy. The frames are built like a rock - and they're not going anywhere anytime soon. They have even created a finely beaded detail on the bridge (view close-ups to see this fine craftsmanship). These are definitely glasses manufactured with a great deal of pride and attention to detail.

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 side shields are perfect. The side shields are as bright and as gleaming as the frames. Absolutely a home run in terms of condition and quality. Yet again a pretty outstanding example of rare antique driving goggles. They are structurally flawless, there are no cracks, scratches, etc., and they are refreshingly clear when you look through them and have the original factory shape. The metal frames for the side shields are gorgeous, with a bright silver gleam. There are no dents or rippling - they have held their original shape and are exceptionally well preserved.

EARPIECES - ARMS:
The earpieces are straight and strong and can be easily adjusted for fit and comfort
PLEASE NOTE: This pair of goggles has an ivory colored protective coating on the earpieces for added comfort and durability, unlike the earpieces shown. The goggles are the same in every other respect.

MEASUREMENTS:
The goggles measure approximately 130mm wide from hinge to hinge and the lenses measure approximately 47mm 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.

* NOTE: The FIRST image shows the goggles being worn with a whole lot of other designs from edmdesigns courtesy of fashion photographer Shannon Soule with model Tiana Mulqueen.

This is an exceptionally high quality and beautiful pair of goggles that are in very good condition for being nearly 100 years old. This style is very hard to come by, so if you are looking for an accessory that sets you apart from the rest, then these goggles will put the finishing touch on your Steampunk wardrobe.

~~~~ THESE WILL COME WITH THE ORIGINAL AMERICAN OPTICAL CASE FOR STORAGE AND ADDED AUTHENTICITY FOR YOU TO ENJOY ~~~~
