The P3 style is the first type of eyeglasses to make use of the newly invented nose pad in the early 1920's. Also known as the "Marshwood" style. Usually made of gold or silver, these frames came with either round or Ovid lenses. The arms came out from the middle of the frame, until the "Ful-Vue" style was invented where the temples came out of the top of the frame, this was done to allow the wearer a "Full View" while looking to his sides without the arms blocking his view. Most of these frames were gold filled, a heavy gold plating process, usually the frame was 10% 12k gold. Throughout the years many have been melted down for their gold content and they are becoming harder to find..
