A pair of antique spectacles in a Curry and Paxton Ltd. case.
These rimless glasses or spectacles date from around the early 21st century. They are a very strong prescription, as the thickness and the inner lens shows. They appear to be for distance viewing. The case is spring closing and has a leather exterior and a red velvet interior. The name Curry and Paxton appears on the edge of the case as the lid is opened.
I believe the glasses to be gold, gold plated or rolled gold but there is no hallmark. The letters MW appear on the two arms, I understand this is the Melson Wingate maker's mark.
The glass lenses are oval and in a good original condition with no breaks, cracks or chips, but there is a scratch on the right lens towards the edge. The case has wear to the top edge of the lid.
The arms on the glasses are very malleable and fit easily over the ears.
