Seller: eclectic_mix4u (1,805) 100%, Location: Midlothian, Virginia, Ships to: Americas, Europe, Asia, AU, Item: 283292025535 FINE PAIR 19TH CENTURY CHINESE SUNGLASSES w/ SMOKY QUARTZ LENSES, SPECTACLESDescription - This auction is for a rare, pair of 19th century Chinese sunglasses. These glasses have beveled smoky quartz, not glass, lenses. They are very uncommon. They were worn by the wealthy to shield their eyes from excessive light, but also by officials & judges to mask their emotions. The lenses were cut from the same piece of smoky quartz as they have identical natural inclusions on the lenses. Both lenses have natural inclusions and smoky colored areas as is normal for pieces of smoky quartz this large. Age - These sunglasses date to the 19th century. Size - The lenses each measure approx. 4.5 cm. across. Condition - The sunglasses are in very good condition. One of the hinges has an older repair (see arrow in close-up photo). The lenses have natural inclusions and shading, not cracks. Please see all photos as they are an integral part of the description.
