USAC / French Meyrowitz No.3 flying goggles

Code: G26183

SOLD

The Gogglette No.3 manufactured by E.B Meyrowitz of New York, Paris & London.  Nickel plated ventilated oval frames with an adjustable hinged nose-piece and black rubber face cushions.  Curved clear glass (?) lenses and a simple adjustable elastic strap.  The frame is tarnished but in very good condition with clear markings.  Both cushions have hardened but aside from a little distortion are undamaged and retain good overall shape.  Excellent lenses but the strap lacks elastication.  These came in an aluminium case for Meyrowitz/Luxor No.6 goggles so although incorrect, we are selling them with it.  The Gogglette No.3 saw service with the United States Air Service, United States Air Corps and French Air Force during the First World War and interwar period.  Good '+' used overall.  Stock code G26183.
