An especially nice pair of protective goggles of the Civil War era, this original example is fashioned with fine wire mesh side protection and blue tinted lenses. Sometimes referred to as artillerist’s glasses, these goggles were frequently used by an eye injured wearer to protect against further damage. An example of such use may be seen in a period portrait of nearly blind Confederate General Adam R. Johnson. (see: Time / Life TOUCHED by FIRE vol. II page 248 ) There is also a period photograph by Gardner of Blackfoot Indian Chief Sitting Crow wearing a pair of these spectacles, no doubt simply as a fashion statement. (see: D. Mark Katz - Life & Photographs of ALEXANDER GARDNER This all original pair remain in excellent plus condition with velvet trim. and fire blued iron side pieces. A nice item for the optical or medical collector as well as the general Civil War era collector. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
