OUR BELOVED JOHN LENNON WORE A PAIR OF THESE AUTHENTIC CIRCA 1889 EYEGLASS SPECTACLES. MADE BY "WINDSOR OPTICAL" OF ENGLAND IN 1889, THESE AWESOME EYEGLASSES WERE JOHN LENNON'S ABSOLUTE FAVORITES, WITH THE THIN TYPE BRIDGE. JOHN LENNON WAS REPORTED TO OWN 42 PAIRS OF WINDSOR OR WINDSOR STYLE EYEGLASSES. THEY WERE OFTENPURCHASED BY HIS FRIENDS AND EVEN THE BEATLES ROAD MANAGER / C.E.O. OF APPLE CORPS AND THE BEATLES STAGE MANAGER MAL EVANS WOULD SEEK THESE OUT FOR JOHN LENNON BUT EVEN JOHN LENNON HIMSELF WAS KNOWN TO VISIT A FLEA MARKET IN CAMDEN THAT'S STILL THERE TODAY. HE PURCHASED SEVERAL PAIRS OF EYEGLASSES THERE... JOHN LENNON'S VERY FIRST PAIR OF GOLD WIRE RIMMED EYEGLASSES WERE GIVEN TO HIM IN 1966 ON THE SET OF "HOW I WON THE WAR". HE STARTED WEARING THE PERFECTLY ROUND WINDSOR AND WINDSOR STYLED SPECTACLES LATE IN 1967. HE WORE BOTH YELLOW GOLD ( ALSO HIS FAVORITE ) AND WHITE GOLD, PERFECTLY ROUND EYEGLASSES, ALL OF WHICH WERE MADE OF 1/10 12K ROLLED GOLD OR GOLD FILLED. ROLD GOLD OR GOLD FILLED IS A VERY SPECIAL HEAT BONDING OF GOLD THAT WAS UNDER STRICT REGULATIONS TO BE THAT OF AT LEAST 10% 12K GOLD, SO THESE ARE NOT ONLY SOUGHT AFTER BY BEATL;ES COLLECTORS WORLD WIDE, THEY ARE ALSO SOUGHT AFTER FOR THEIR GOLD VALUE, EVEN IN SCRAP. THESE EYEGLASSES MEASURE 4 5/8 INCHES ( 118MM ) FROM HINGE EDGE TO HINGE EDGE. THE LENSES MEASURE 1 5/8 INCHES ( 42MM ) IF YOU INCLUDE THE RIMS BUT YOU WILL BE ORDERING 40 MM LENSES TO MAKE UP FOR THE THICKNESS OF THE RIMS. I USE A DIGITAL CALIPER TO MEASURE. THE BRIDGE MEASURES 3/4 OF AN INCH ( 20MM ). THE TEMPLE STEMS WHICH ARE COVERED WITH A PRODUCT CALLED "ZYLO", A VERY DURABLE CELLULOID TYPE PF PLASTIC DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR EYEGLASS FRAMES AND STEMS. IT IS REMOVABLE AS WELL. THE CABLE STEMS MEASURE 3 1/2 INCHES ( 99MM ) TO THE START OF THE CURVE AND AT LEAST 6 INCHES (152MM ) IN TOTAL LENGTH... THEY ARE OF ADULT MEDIUM SIZE FOR FRAMES WITH ADULT SMALL TEMPLE STEMS. THESE ARE NOT CABLED ENDS AS WELL. THESE TEMPLE STEMS ARE STILL AVAILABLE ONLINE AT A VERY REASONABLE COST AND ANY SIZE IS AVAILABLE. YOUR OPTICAL EXPERT WILL GLADLY INSTALL ANY STEMS BEFORE OR AFTER YOU PURCHASE YOUR OWN. WHEN HAVING LENSES OR STEMS INSTALLED, IN THE U.S. I TOTALLY RECOMMEND "PEARLE VISION CENTER" AND ALL WORK WILL BE PERFORMED FOR FREE. THEY ALSO HAVE PRESCRIPTION LENSES FOR THESE AND NON PRESCRIPTION LENSES AND CAN COME TINTED ANY COLOUR, TRUE OPTICAL GLASS OR PLASTIC. BELIEVE ME, I AM A REGULAR CUSTOMER AND BEFORE I SELL ANY EYEGLASSES THEY ARE SEEN BY A PEARLE VISION OPTICAL EXPERT AND OFTEN SEEN BY AN OBSTETRITION MAINLY BECAUSE EVERYTIME I TAKE THEM INTO AN OPTICAL SHOPPE THEY ALL WANT TO LOOK AT THEM... THEY'RE MEGA POPULAR AND WERE ALSO WORN BY MAHATMA GHANDI, THEODORE "TEDDY ROOSEVELT", EARNEST HEMMINGWAY, THEY WERE WORN BY THE "HARRY POTTER" CHARACTER AND EVEN WHOOPIE GOLDBERG WEARS THESE SAME ANTIQUE WINDSOR EYEGLASSES. 100% GUARANTEED TO BE EXACTLY LIKE THE EYEGLASSES SHOWN IN MY PICTURES OF JOHN LENNON OR YOUR MONEY BACK, INCLUDING RETURN POSTAGE... I GOT A LOT OF MY INFORMATION FROM THE EYEGLASS WAREHOUSE, WHO GOT THEIR INFORMATION DIRECTLY FROM YOKO ONO AND SEAN LENNON, A PRETTY GOOD SOURCE IF YOU ASK ME... ? I GOT THE PRIVLEGE OF HEARING THE RECORDING OF THAT CONVERSATION.MAKE ABSOLUTELY NO MISTAKES ABOUT IT FOLKS, THESE ARE THE "REAL THING" AND NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH THE MANY KNOCK OFFS OR REPLICAS SUCH AS THOSE WE SEE ALL OVER AND EASILY IDENTIFIED BY THE FACSIMLE OF JOHN LENNON AUTOGRAPH WHICH FOUND ON THE SAMPLE LENSES AND / OR THE SIDE OF THE TEMPLE STEMS... THEY ARE STILL MADE TODAY BUT DON'T CONTAIN ANYWHERE NEAR THE AMOUNT OF GOLD AND ARE OFTEN STEEL BASED...I HAVE SPENT HUNDREDS OF HOURS STUDYING THOSE EYEGLASSES THAT JOHN LENNON WORE I'VE ANSWERED QUESTIONS FOR MANY MANY PEOPLE, INCLUDING AGENTS QUESTIONS AT AND I'VE TRULY BECOME AN AUTHORITY ON THEM AS WELL. JOHN LENNON NEVER WORE THESE EYEGLASSES BUT THEY'RE GUARANTEED TO BE EXACTLY LIKE HIS AND VERY "AUTHENTIC". These eyeglasse have been tested as 1/10 12K gold filled... INEVER USE THE TERM "MINT". TO ME, THESE ARE JUST LIKE COINS AND JEWELRY. IF THEY'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY HUMAN HANDS I CONSIDER THEM TO BE IN "NEAR MINT" CONDITION.... PERIOD !!
