ARTIFACT: Wonderful early 1930's Pur – O – Ray Ophthalmic Sunglasses in original hard case. This example bears early, small size lenses are dark green and in the 'Aviator' shape and the frame is 10K gold-filled. The original, vinyl-lined hard case reads: "Pur – O – Ray OPHTHALMIC SUN GLASSES" on the top and the inside is lined with cranberry colored velvet. Great look for vintage motorcycles!

VINTAGE: Circa early 1930's

SIZE: Approximately Case: 6" x 2 ¼"; Frame 4 7/8" wide; Lens 2" x 1 ¾", Arms: 4" x 1 ¾" round

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Lens, 10K gold fill, white metal, velvet

ATTACHMENT: Original hinged case.


ITEM NOTES: This is from a US Army Air Corps collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VCJX15 LBGEX8/15 SLAGEX4/16 SeBBEX8/16

CONDITION: 7- (Very Fine-): The sunglasses show minor to moderate wear, the case shows moderate to heavy use. The lenses shows minor surface wear and the frame seems to have been tweaked, an easy adjustment will fix. Much of the gold fill detail remains, overall great, wearable condition with original case.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
