Antique Octagonal Crank Bridge Loop Side Telescopic Spectacles Glasses



This is a very old pair of magnifying glasses with octagonal lenses, a crank bridge, and telescopic temples. It is marked "10" near the end piece.

These are known as narrow loop slide or Jack Downing glasses. The temples are telescopic, which means they slide in and out.

Hinge to hinge: 4.25” Bridge: 1.25” Lens: 1.25” W x .9375” H (including frame)

Item shows wear that is consistent with age and use. There is a chip on the edge of one lens. One of the hinges is loose. There is some loss to the silver tone. A slight gap between one lens and the frame. This same lens is a bit loose in the frame

Hi and welcome to my profile. I'm new to Niknax and currently importing my listings from another platform. If you see shipping that is more than it should be, I have not yet had a chance to update it to the correct cost. Feel free to reach out about an item and I will update the listing if there's something you'd like to purchase.
