Pince nez black rubber
Pince nez black rubber was in style just before the American Civil War. This pince-nez spectacle is made of hard rubber.
The spring bridge is made of blued steel.
This pince nez black rubber spectacle has about +1.25 power reading lenses.
Pince nez means “pinch nose” in French. It is one of the earliest styles of spectacles. This one is most useful for helping reading in a normal-sighted person over 40 years old.
The lenses can be replaced but most modern day opticians will decline responsibility if the frame breaks during the process of changing lenses. Also, because nose sizes vary, this is not a frame for and astigmatic correction where axis alignment is important.
