Standard Spectacle USA
A Tinted blue glass called the standard USA spectacle with metal frame. In 1756, English settlers at 1756 Southampton, NY introduced molds and stamping tools to address the growing demand for magnified eye devices. American artisans enhanced the original round molds, transforming them into an oval shape for a more universally flattering fit. This particular model remained unchanged in style for a century. Due to the era’s metal molding techniques, each component underwent meticulous hand filing and finishing. Preserved in seed oil, this collection avoided deterioration. In the late 1980s, Giorgio Armani Eyewear drew inspiration from this model, shaping it into the iconic signature piece it is known for today.
