Pince-Nez Oddities

This is a fun topic. I recently received notice that Antique Spectacles has posted photos of a large assortment of pince-nez oddities. Yes, there are some very unusual and interesting configurations of pince-nez in this group. There is one flexible guard style on the first page which has lenses resembling cooked eggs (i.e.,yellow center, white periphery). Words alone cannot do justice to these images.

There are about seventy images appearing on two web pages. Please check out this amazing collection on The pages are entitled "Not Your Average Pince-Nez."
