Antique Tortoise Shell Eyeglasses Frame Oval X-Bridge 1880's Original Case France Lunettes Ecaille Spectacles Bésicles


Antique pair of spectacles made of tortoise shell around the 1890's. I found this set in France. The frame seems to hold then original lenses, one lens has a hand etching looking like an 8.

The original case is included and seems to be made of paper and thin leather.

The condtition is complete, but it has spots where the surface has desintegrated, not so much on the visible part, more on the backside. Please study the pictures well.

Distance between lenses is 28mm
Total width is appr. 117mm
Temple arms lenght: 122mm
