Imperial Japanese army flying goggles
Imperial Japanese Army Goggles. Manufactured by TGK (Tokyo Glass Kikai). Brown lacquered aluminium frames stitched to chocolate coloured brown padded velvet cushions. Fitted with curved elliptical clear glass lenses and wide adjustable elasticated strap. This is a relatively early pair with quality leather fittings, glass lenses and brass frame fittings. Later goggles used cheaper metals and plastics. The frames are in very good condition and have the TGK mark on each side. The velvet padding and silk nosepiece are also good but a little soiled and worn. The clear glass lenses appear excellent. The strap is a bit frayed, soiled and faded with little elasticity remaining. Some initials have been painted onto the strap retainer on one side. A good pair of these high quality goggles. Stock code G22744.
