1740-1800 Reproduction Glasses Frames (Shorter Temple)


Please note this is a slightly shorter temple style than what we have previously carried.

These high quality glasses accurately replicate historical examples from the mid to late 18th century. Their one-piece temples are shorter than those on the later styles we carry, and usually end at the temple rather than extend to the ear. Clear sample lenses are included in the round 1-3/16" openings, ready to have your prescription installed by your local optometrist or they are available with 2X lenses. The nose bridge on this style is slightly wider than on our Late 18th century hinged glasses. These eye glasses fit nicely in our HC-789 Hinged Tin Eye Glass Case, sold separately.
