windsor eyeglasses

The Windsor style was introduced in 1880 and remained popular until after World War I. Characteristics of this style are: round lenses, a saddle bridge (no nose pads), and cable temples (they loop behind the ear). Windsors come in silver, roman steel, gold-filled, gold, and nickle. Often the lenses and sometimes the temples were covered with Zylo (celluloid). Common Zylo colors are black, brown, blonde, and tortoise shell.

This style frame was worn by John Lennon, Ernest Hemingway, Groucho Marx, Theodore Roosevelt, William Hurt, Mahatma Gandhi, Joseph Stalin, Winston Churchill, and in more recent years by David Letterman and Whoppie Goldberg.
