Luftwaffe Model '295' Flying Goggles

Code: G19725


Model 295 Windschutzbrille Flying Goggles. By O.W. Wagner & Co. of Rathenow.  Designed initially for open cockpits but also used by airgunners in exposed positions these have oval metal frames mounted on a large single piece rubber face cushion.  The frames are in excellent condition with only minor paint loss/chipping.  The cushion retains a good overall shape but has stiffened a bit / lost flexibility in places and has cracks at the nose and to one side - see photos.  The strap is a bit faded and stretched but does retain a little elasticity. Fitted with clear glass lenses in good used condition and come with a spare set housed in a cotton pouch.  The goggles come with the original card carton which although very tatty retains the manufacturer's paper label dated December 1942.  Stock code G19725.
