rimless frame with a saddle bridge

Rimless eyeglasses were introduced in 1880 and remained popular to the 1950s. Early rimless eyeglasses, made between 1880 and 1920 did not have nose pads. The horse was the primary means of transportation. Rimless oval shaped eyeglasses were a variant of a style called Riding Temple. Early rimless eyeglasses were designed to fit close to the face.

The saddle bridge was popular until the early 1920s. These frames have a bridge shaped like a horse's saddle that is designed to curve around the bridge of the nose.

This style of frame was worn by the late Steve Jobs, founder of Apple, Inc.
