Product Description

A really cool pair of original optometry glasses…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we would suggest that they date to the mid to late part of the 20th century.  They are so cool for decorative purposes but equally functional if you are designing a ‘steam punk’ hat or costume!

Made in Germany, the glasses are stamped with ‘Universal’ and ‘Messbrille’. The Occulus or Universal-Mesbrille is an essential tool of the optometrist and oculist used in the proper fitting and determination of eyeglasses and prescriptions

These are lightweight, yet full of detail and look awesome modeled on our featured mannequin head…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. The glasses are in brilliant condition with just a few surface scars and abrasions, and some paint chipping in areas. We feel the current condition simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

These glasses also come with two glass lenses…

Please note : The mannequin head is used for photography purposes only and not included within this listing
