Estate Lot of 12 Antique Eyeglasses from the 1800s & 1900s. This wonderful historic lot is from one family and a great collection of their eyewear spanning many years. Cases are also original. Please read entire description and see all photos. I have tried to detail as much information as possible, and am happy to answer any questions if you have them.
Lot includes, eyeglasses with tinted lenses, bifocals, frameless, children’s, Windsor, prince nez style, wire rimmed and more. The bifocals are a very cool frameless pair. 4 in the lot have some have some damage and can be seen in the last photo.
Many have markings, some do not. Some of the markings were makers marks that I couldn’t decipher. Some also say 12k GF. Here’s a list of what I could:
• FA Hardy & Co
• B & L USA (black pair with tape)
The collection comes from Michigan and many of the cases are marked as such. Some appear quite old and are unmarked. One is marked Manhattan NYC.
