18th Century Folding Sunglasses

Nice early style glasses. The frames are plated silver color with green lenses. The temple fold and have the looped ends for attaching a ribbon. The frames do not have a screw that holds the lenses in place but a good optician should be able to pop these lenses out and replace with a prescription polycarbonate set. Still not a bad price for period sun protection. The temple pieces can be bent to conform to your head better. Don't bend at the hinge, hold the front part of the temple bar with a pair of pliers and start the bend behind the hinge. 

Only have 8 pair left.

Redware Dish

These were made by the Williamsburg Pottery Factory for Colonial Williamsburg. These will no longer be available. The stamp on the back certifies that these were copied from an original found in Williamsburg. 

Each one was hand made so no two are exactly alike.

They measure 5" x 3" and 1" deep inside.

 

Great as a soap dish or keeping small items handy. Original price on these was $25.

Box of Scraps

This is a box packed tight with various sizes of scrap wood suitable for knife handles, starter blocks, small turnings and any other small project where you might need nice wood. Each box is 11"x8"x5" and contains assorted pieces of curly maple, walnut, cherry and/or beech. These are left over from gun stocks and I'm making more every week so there is plenty to go around. I'm tired of my wife using all of the good stuff as kindling for the fireplace.

$15 each

In the comment section of the check out form let me know what you plan to make so I can send appropriate sized scraps.

Measures 6 overall when extended, 4 when folded.
