Vintage Pince Nez Spectacles Rimless Eyeglasses with Clip Nose Pads and Safety Chain


Vintage Pince Nez spectacles or eyeglasses with wireless frames, clip or spring nose pads, and a safety chain with curved ear piece. The metal used is gold colored and possibly gold fill but they are unmarked. They actually clip to your nose! I would guess they are from around the 1930s. The clipping mechanism is really quite nifty. Great for your pince nez collection or a great pair of retro eyewear for those moments you need a little clarity. You will need to add your own prescription. The current lens appear to be bifocals. These do tend to the smaller size.

CONDITION: Very good and still working condition. The ear piece could use being brought back into perfect curved shape (any jeweler can do this) and honestly it needs new nose pads. Whatever early plastic was used has deteriorated to the point of discomfort. There is a repair to the delicate chain.

Width: 4 inches
