The preferred eyewear of Anton Chekov, Teddy Roosevelt and Dandy Fops since the 15th Century, the Pince Nez sits on the nose and is usually attached by a chain or cord to clothing, or in this case a hairdo. This particular example is a pair of ladies Pince Nez sunglasses with grey lenses.
These sunglases were probably made near the turn of the 20th Century. They come attached to a gold-filled chain and a gold-filled hairpin. A lady would pin the gold hairpin into her "updo" and wear these Pince Nez glasses when it was sunny.
These Pince Nez glasses come with their original leather lined case which is imprinted, "Stein & Damon Jewelers & Opticians Alliance, Ohio" on the cover in gold. Perfect for a sunny Sunday afternoon in the park, your favorite Downton Abbey cosplay picnic, Edwardian Ball, or Steampunk outing.
