Early 19th Century Glasses WIDE UNPLATED GL-782
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 1830s to the 1860's. Made of brass just like our originals and unplated so they will turn your face green if left uncoated. They come with clear lenses so you can have your prescription fitted by your optometrist. These spectacles are the wider width - about 5-1/4 inches inside the temple pieces and the lenses are 1-3/8 inch wide by 13/16 inches tall.
