The Glasses


I won the glasses:

What I know so far is that they are Bausch and Lomb. I will post everything else I learn once I have them.

This was a pure sniper auction. I’ve never seen that before—especially surprising since the two other bidders were newbies.

Re: The Glasses


Thanks Chuckles.

Does “sp” refer to spelling? The picture above is a hyperlink to the listing.

Yes, they were expensive; and I still got off cheap. I was just lucky that the other two bidders were relatively naïve bargain hunters. I have been tracking adult sized vintage glasses (especially Bausch and Lomb) since I started collecting objects, and I can assure you I got off cheap. The surprise was that the competition took so long to show up.

My glasses came:

I know about as much as I did before. They are Bausch and Lomb and they have the funny little triangles. I will need to get the lenses replaced.

Re: The Glasses


Actually I like those bifocals...if Eddie's eyes were as bad as they let on in the show then it seems likely that those would be the lenses he would have had.

The lenses in the glasses on the show are obvious dummy lenses (regular glass) and to me they look cheesy. Real lenses give a distorted look to the eyes when worn....not that flat look the glasses give Ruby.

If I ever get 100% paulian Glasses then I will get my eyes checked and have the proper prescription lenses put in to make them both functional and give them the proper look.

I have actually been considering the same thing. Fortunately, or unfortunately, I only need glasses for reading. I know this sounds cheesy, but when I am watching TLR I sometimes do like a little kid: when one of the objects comes up, I grab the appropriate object from my collection and play along. For that reason, I was thinking it would be nice to have the glasses filled with plain lenses. When Ruby puts on his glasses, I can put on mine and pretend I am putting out a fire.
