Gold wire frame glasses 1890

Gold spectacles frame, wire rim glasses feature very attractive oval lenses. There are two different straight temples of the pin in slot type. One has a larger tear shaped opening and the other has a tiny hole at its end. Although different from each other, the temples appear to be original.
The left temple is hallmarked “A.L & Co.”
The lenses are convex, glass lenses, of about +1.00 diopter of power each. This is the power a typical person in their forties would use to read. Of course, an optician could replace the lenses with one’s own prescription.

This gold spectacles bridge is of the scroll type from this era.
