Remember Madame X, the pince-nez wearer featured in our September 2013 post? She was kind enough to send the following message to the Renaissance:
"Just wanted to share a few pince-nez links I stumbled across recently.
First,if you're willing to travel to the Czech Republic for fittings and have
a spare couple thousand euros to spend, a place that does custom made,
modern mountings in gold apparently exists: Tomáš Říha.
They're so gorgeous that even though they're unaffordable, the gallery is certainly worth gazing at.
Second, for laughs and a look at pince nez in action in film see the Big Sleep. She looks amazing in them - large lenses and all; too bad Bogie has to go ahead and ruin it. Oh well; goes to show you, even with minimal eyewear, Parker's adage holds true (at least in fiction)."
Thank you for your input!
