Vintage Designer Sunglasses
Pilot and Motorcycle Steampunk Goggles

Rare and authentic vintage 1940s metal framed, leather blinkered pilot or motorcycle goggles look great as regular sunglasses, ski and snowboard glasses, or ready for the Harley or Cessna. We see vintage steampunk goggles from time to time dating to the early to middle of the 20th century, but everyone here agreed that these have a style and quality that sets them apart. The silver metal frame holds the original round lens, the most notable style aspect of which is how flush and flat the lens fit against the front of the frame. The ear stems are flexible wire to provide a nice, secure fit perfect for active outdoor pursuits. The wire ear stems slot through the leather side blinkers that adorn each side of these vintage steampunk goggles, and if you haven't worn sunglasses that have the side blinkers you'll really like how they keep the wind and sunlight off your eyes from the sides. The double metal nose bridge has design roots in the aviator sunglasses that Bausch & Lomb was introducing about the same time under the Ray Ban brand, but we really like the wide separation of the 2 bars on these vintage goggles. The inside of one of the 2 leather side blinkers has been marked Steele 387 which we believe to be a previous owner and perhaps the airplane the original owner may have flown wearing these goggles. Sure to get you lots of notice, these are not reproductions but rather authentic vintage steampunk pilot / motorcycle goggles in very good vintage condition- well taken care of over the years. The frame measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple, and the lens are approximately 1.875" in diameter.
