Fatigued French Finds

Visit my eBay store  


This is a pair of antique French folding pince nez eyeglasses.

They are in good condition but the frame does have some rust and

will need cleaning.  The covering on the nose pads in still in place

and in good condition.  The lenses are approximately  1 & 5/8th's of

an inch wide.  The lenses are in good condition with some light scratches

to the surface.  I am quite short sighted and when I try them on, I am

not aware of any correction in the lenses, so I guess they are just


This item will be sent Marchandise Prioritaire from France.

Many thanks for looking.

Your item will be shipped within 3 working days of receipt of payment.  We have generally found the French Postal Service to be reliable but on occasions, it can take a long time to deliver.  When leaving feedback please be aware that this time frame is out of our control and we will always despatch your item within 3 working days from receipt of payment, in most cases the day after receipt. 

When ever possible we will combine shipping to save postage costs, however, if we have quoted Marchandise Prioritaire Recorded, please be aware that there is a 2kg limit on this service.  . 

Please note that the postage quoted, is the rates as per La Poste.  We have no control over these rates.  International Shipping from France is expensive!  Please don't mark us down on postage costs as we cannot avoid them. Please also bear in mind that Ebay take 6% of our postage costs in fees.  If you want a copy of La Poste's charges for international destinations, please ask and we will send one to your email address.

Please contact us to obtain combined postage rates before making a bid.  We do not want to disappoint and sometimes, because of the weight limits on Marchand Prioritaire, we are unable to combine and save money.  Another option, for combining is the Colissimo 7kg box.  This box measures 383cms x 250cms x 195cms.  It could be particularly good for heavy sheets.  My estimate is that it will take between 3 & 4 sheets.

 As the rate of exchange is continually changing, please contact me for the price of this box prior to purchase.  An estimation of the cost is: USA/Australia/Japan: $60, UK/Europe: $50.  Please do not assume that it will be suitable for your shipment.  It is always necessary to contact us before purchasing and enquire about combining.

Please ensure, that if there is any damage to the outside of your carton, that it is noted when signing for your item. 



When you buy anything from us you are buying a Vintage item, which has had a past life.  We always thoroughly check the item for flaws and defects and describe what we find in the listing.  Occasionally, it is possible that we may miss something but this is never intentional and if it is found that we have badly described something we will offer a full refund with no quibble.  Additionally, we try to use as many photos of the object as possible without being repetitive.  If however, you want a specific photo, please contact us and we will be happy to supply it.

If you intend to bid on an item but have a question about the item or postage, please contact us before the sale ends and not at the end of the sale. 

If you like things in pristine condition with no signs of age, then maybe a vintage item is not for you.
