Vintage Eye Glasses, Wire Rim, Early 1900's, in case - G.F.
Vintage Oval Wired Rim Glasses - antiques - early 1900's. They are in good condition - the gold filled finish has some wear which is expected for their age. They are appx. 4.75" from the hinge on each side of the lens and lenses are appx. 1.25" tall and 1.5" wide. They curl behind the ear with a little bead at the end of the wire. Honestly, these are in good condition considering age - lenses are dirty with some wear - I see one scratch. The are gold filled with a brass base metal - you can see some of the brass on the back of the noise piece and also where there is some finish wear. I leave old pieces as is unless a repair is need. They photos will show the lenses as they are - they can be cleaned if desired or if going to be used. They have a black faux linen wrapped metal case with a black velvet/felt linking - there is wear outside and inside but still work and stay closed. Great for theatre use too. These came from a PA estate where I got items from the late 1800s through mid-century 1900's. I've seen these on website dealing in vintage eyewear for $135.00 and higher. There is finish wear on the bridge and some on the ear pieces but also some of the area is still bright. See photos. (Lot. Loc. W.8/9.17.1X1 - LD 2/22/18).
We carry mostly vintage jewelry across all themes in my stores and listings. We have our own store and are and have been known as stampshopgirl in Ebay and have been since I think 2003. At one point we had a gift shop/rubber stamping store and switched over to vintage jewelry about six years ago on a full time basis, which also including taking and completing gemology classes as well as jewelry appraisal studies. We carry limited other vintage items and am trying to change our presence to marias vintage and estate treasures. You may see both names until the migration is complete. You can find us on pinterest where all ebay items and other venues are categorized - mariasvinta0654.
WE DO NOT STORE FINE METALS AND GEMSTONES ON PREMISES. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT QUESTIONS MAY NOT BE ABLE TO BE ANSWERED IMMEDIATELY. THANK YOU.
Thank you for stopping by, mariasvintage.
Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.
I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
