Cesco 'Wide Vision' Flying Goggles. White metal frames perforated on the upper and lower edges with ventilation holes to prevent fogging. Rubber facepads, curved clear glass lenses and a simple elastic strap. The frames are good bar fairly light tarnishing. The pads retain quite good shape but have hardened and are perished/cracked in places (see photos). Light scratches on the lenses. Excellent strap. Manufactured by Cesco in Chicago these goggles afforded a good wide field of vision uninterupted by frame edges. Produced in the interwar period and used largely in commercial aviation.
