Victorian blued steel shooting spectacles
Regular price £115
An incredibly rare surviving pair of Victorian shooting spectacles with one blacked out lens and blued steel frames. The clear lens is non-prescription but slightly magnifying to aid in a marksman's shot, with the black lens allowing the left eye to be open whilst aiming. Likely to have been commissioned for a competition target shooting marksman.
Comes complete with an original Edwardian opticians box.
Approx 115mm wide
22mm across the bridge of the nose
115mm arm length
Beautiful condition, no cracks or chips in the lenses. Rust on the frames but most of the bluing still remains.
