Measure: 4.5” across both lenses, bows are 4.5” long, each lens is 1.75” across
Around the early 1900’s when cars were becoming more available, people were discovering the need for clearer vision. Glasses of the day usually had the bows lined up with the temples, which interfered with peripheral vision. Ful Vue glasses came along with the bows mounted higher on the frames so that peripheral vision was unobstructed! These glasses are in great condition. The frames are very usable. The lenses are intact with no cracks and (amazingly) no scratches that I can see! The nose piece is stamped “Ful Vue 12KGF”. It does appear that one of the bows was replaced but this doesn’t affect the wearability and is barely noticeable to the naked eye. The leather and velvet case is showing signs of wear but is still perfectly usable. I believe it could be cleaned up a bit. The cover has a silver inset with the name “Symons” and “Skowhegan, ME”. Skowhegan is about a ½ hour drive from The Shop here in Embden.
