    Well I stepped up on these because I had never seen any quite like them Guessing they are a sample case with reading glasses.
    Very unique.
    Can see S.O. Stevens on one of the pair.
    Can anyone date these for me. The second and third pics are extra items in the same purchase.

      Pinz-nez. I can't date them closely, but here are some links to get you started. miKKo : )

      Nice set of pince-nez! You have the hoop spring variety which is my favorite. The other type has springs holding the nose guards.
