ARTIFACT: Wonderful early 1930's Pur – O – Ray Ophthalmic Sunglasses in original hard case.

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.
