Imperial Japanese Army/Navy Goggles.  Manufacturer marks 'SS'.  Bronze coloured lacquered aluminium frames stitched to pale brown padded velvet cushions.  Fitted with curved elliptical clear glass lenses and a 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 good condition though the finish is a little worn/rubbed.  The velvet padding shows use and rubbing to the rear and the silk nosepiece is soiled and worn.  The right clear glass lens is excellent but the left has a crack.  Both strap attachment points are good but the actual strap has been replaced with plain black elastic.  This is evidently quite old and worn.  Although not perfect, still a decent pair of goggles and they display quite well.  Stock code G23092.
