Luftwaffe model 295 flying goggles

Code: G19726


Sold

Model 295 Windschutzbrille flying goggles. By O.W. Wagner & Co. of Rathenow.  Developed in the early 1930s, initially for open cockpits but used throughout the war and favoured by airgunners in exposed positions. These have oval metal frames mounted on a large single piece rubber face cushion.  The frames are in very good condition with just minor paint loss/chipping on exposed edges.  They are marked with the manufacturer's initials 'O.W.'  The cushion retains a good overall shape but has stiffened a bit / lost flexibility in places and has cracks at the nose - see photos.  The strap is a little faded and soiled but does retain good elasticity. Fitted with excellent tinted glass lenses.   Stock code G19726.
