These frames are unplated. Yet another style of reproduction frames based on originals in the JT&S collection. These frames have telescoping temple pieces and rectangular lenses are perfect for the 1830's to the 1860's. Made of brass just like our original spectacles and unplated so they will turn your face green. They come with clear lenses so you can have your prescription fitted by your optometrist. These are the normal width - about 5" inside the temple pieces and the lenses are 1-1/8 inch wide by 13/16 inches tall. Please note: These glasses fit our extra-deep GL-786 Tin Eyeglass Case.

Absolutely perfect

These frames are wonderful! As a gentleman with large face I Often have trouble with finding a period correct frame, that doesn't look ackward. These are my second pair of frames, from Townsend. An they're by far my favorite, they don't slip or slide during my dutys. The only unfortunate thing (although very trivial) is that they are unplated an will turn your skin green. Although this is clearly stated in the description. Nonetheless, if your looking for wonderful frames with a squarish lens, these are your best bet! Maybe in the future they're will one with a coating. If so im, sure I'll but those as well. All in all take it, from one powdermonkey to another. These are great value for such a, low price! Not to, mention the customer service I received was outstanding!

I got my perscription put in these and wear them all day long three days a week and sometimes find myself driving home with them on. Eye glasses are the hardest part of my kit to remember to put on, but they make a big difference. Review by Peter (Posted on 1/12/2018)
