An especially nice pair of protective goggles of the Civil War era, this original example is fashioned with fine wire mesh side protection and green tinted glass lenses. Sometimes referred to as artillerist’s glasses due to their use as eye protection by mounted artillery, these goggles were frequently used by an eye injured wearer to protect against further damage. An example of such use may be seen in a period portrait of nearly blind Confederate General Adam R. Johnson. (see: Time / Life TOUCHED by FIRE vol. II page 248 ) There is also a period photograph by Gardner of Blackfoot Indian Chief Sitting Crow wearing a pair of these goggles no doubt simply as a fashion statement. (see: D. Mark Katz - Life & Photographs of ALEXANDER GARDNER This pair remain in pleasing condition with period adjustable cord and good evidence of period use and carrying while remaining in excellent condition with original black lacquer finish. A nice item for the optical or medical collector as well as the general Civil War era collector. As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !
