These are in great vintage condition. We have inspected them to make sure they are fully functional, can take your prescription lenses, and are suitable for daily wear.




Pince-nez Eyeglasses have no arms, they clip on to the nose. Thus the name Pince-nez which in French means – pincer, to pinch, and nez, nose. Pince-nez reached their peak popularity around 1885 and were popular until around 1920. During their prime, Pince-nez accounted for over two thirds of all eyeglasses worn in the US. They were so popular that the name eyeglasses referred specifically to Pince-nez; spectacles meant frames with ear pieces. There are two basic types of Pince-Nez, The C bridge and The hard Bridge. The general difference  between the 2 is that the C bridge has a flexible bridge  that presses down  on the nose while the hard bridge is not flexible and is held in place by  two spring loaded pads that clip on to the nose. Pince-nez started to fall out of favor to a large degree in the 1920s and haven't been manufactured since.
