    Hi filmnet, more great photos.

    I tried several times, and just now, to post a comment about your group of antique spectacles but for some reason it won't post. So, here is my comment about your collection of eye glasses:

    I will give you two good websites for you to research. It's hard to ID them specifically without seeing the details in person. So, you have your work cut out for you. The first site will probably help you the most.

    On the fly :-) second row, the middle shaded one and the third row, second one, are Pince-Nez. I'm pretty sure the last one, the single lens, fourth row, is also. Fifth row, middle, if they are steel wire, could be mid-19th century but again, impossible to see details. Third row, last one that is shaded: if the shades flip open it's a 19th century turn-pin. Sixth row, first one, is probably Marshwood.

    First site is Ed Welch's Antique Vintage Eyeglasses. The categories are on left:

    Second site is Gilai Collectibles. You will have to look at every page, not categorized.
