marshwood frames

The nose pad was invented in the early 1920s. It allowed the lens to be farther away from the face. No longer was the width of lenses restricted to a size that fit under the eyebrow. The Marshwood style with round, ovid, and oval lenses in a wire-bound frame was one of the most successful styles to develop as a result of the nose pad.

Below is our selection of wire rim frames, more specifically the Marshwood style. We have frames made by Art Craft, Shuron, Eyetel, Bausch & Lomb, Univis, and various other American manufacturers.
