Beautiful antique silver eyeglass frames. They are approximately 80 years old and show some signs of use / wear and tear but would still make a great pair. There are no lenses in them and they are ready for your prescription lenses and for everyday use. Check out my ebay store For a large selection of antique P3 eyeglass frames as well as many different vintage styles. 


These are previously worn frames, normal scratches and general wear and tear is expected. We have inspected them to make sure they are fully functional, screws and hinges work, can take your prescription lenses and are suitable for daily use.


Frame width: 4 5/8 inches

Temple Length: 6 1/2 inches

Lens size: 42X37mm

Bridge: 20mm

This is a medium sized pair.

Most Vintage frames tend to run small. They were worn much closer to the face than today's frames. Please make sure this size will work for you before ordering.


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..
