Very nice, rare antique 18thC spectacle frame. The pair has a C Bridge with round lenses and double hinged "Ayscough" temples with teardrop finials. Just visible inside one of the temples.
Spectacles of this kind are also sometimes referred to as wig spectacles due to the fashion at the time and the fact they were hard to wear unless you had a wig on. These spectacles were salvaged from the ruins of my grandfathers opthalmic opticians business after it was bombed in WW2.
