Perhaps the most famous nose spectacles were from Nuremberg, Germany, where they were mass-produced and widely exported, starting around 1650 and going well into the 19th century. These Nose Spectacles are excellent reproductions of the popular Nuremberg originals that remained relatively unchanged in their basic design for nearly 200 years. Handmade of sterling silver and wrapped with pure silk floss for a better grip where they come in contact with the nose. They come fitted with plastic 2x reader lenses. Handmade here at Jas. Townsend & Son. As odd as they look, they’re actually quite comfortable! Comes with a handmade wooden case. We are experiencing a high demand for this style of spectacles at this time. Please allow several weeks for delivery.
