Vintage Fulvue 12K GF WIRE FRAME EYE GLASSES Engraved! - eBay (item 310105538727 end time Dec-06-08 19:40:46 PST)
This vintage pair of wire frame bifocal eye glasses is marked, "/OFULVUE/10-12K GF" on the bridge and "/O1/10 12K GF" on both temples. The bridge, hinges, temples and rims have art deco decorative carving. They have floating nose pads for comfort.
The metal glasses case has worn black faux leather fabric outer covering and is lined with black velvet that's loosened from the lid. The lenses are pitted much like my father's were from welding sparks.
This style of temple that wraps around the back of the ear is great for active people. These spectacles will not fall off, even if you turn upside-down.
The glasses measure 114 mm wide across the front, the distance between the lenses is 19 mm, and the temples are 115 mm long from hinge join to the middle of the ear curve. The lenses measure 42 mm wide and 38 mm high. The bridge and hinges are attached to rims fully enclosing the lenses.
