I purchased these eyeglasses recently at an estate sale. The sign that was with them stated them to be German with a date of late 1800s to early 1900s. They come in a thick cardboard pull-a-part case. On the case it says "Ed Fiedler, Uhrmacher & Optiker, Altena L.W.". (Where it says L.W., that letter L may be something else as it's hard to read).

I call this style 'Ben Franklin" glasses. The wire portions are silver in color. I did the magnet test on the wiring and it did not stick (except for the screws), but there are no markings as to material content. There are no repairs that I can see. They appear to be in very good condition.

As to the strength, again, they are not marked. I can tell you that I wear glasses, but I buy the store bought reading glasses in a number 2 strength. I tried the pair offered in this listing on and I can see fairly well through them, but they are a bit stronger than what I'm used to.

Delivery will be via USPS First Class Mail Parcel from California. Buyer to pay delivery charges of $3.99.
