B&L Bausch & Lomb Steel Mesh Safety Motorcycle Steampunk Goggles
Very rare Bausch & Lomb steampunk goggles c 1940s started out life as high end safety glasses but today are worn by bikers and other outdoor enthusiasts who want authentic antique goggles and the associated quality that comes with them. The most notable design feature are the amazing steel mesh side blinkers, and they rotate on hinges to contour closely to the face to give you added protection on the sides. They also fold inward to allow for folding, and the unique and rather amazing hinges allow the ear stems to fold the opposite wasy from the direction when worn to allow them to fold in front of the lenses and into a small package. It's really a pretty incredible design and a great look, and the clear optical B&L lenses are both laser etched 1.75" x 1.75" at the widest points and are etched with the early B&L triangle mark. The frame measures approximately 5.125" to make them suitable for men and women, and the rear of the nose bridge is marked 22 Bausch & Lomb 47 impressed in the metal. They've survived the years remarkably well along with the original bakelite nose pads and shooter ear stems for a secure fit, part of a major museum quality collection of early 20th century eyewear in Richmond, Virginia.
