18th Century Sliding Temples

Sliding temple spectacles featured a temple arm that was movable. The temple arm could be retracted for storage. When in use, the temple arm was extended. Sliding temple spectacles were made from the early 1760’s until 1880. This type of spectacle stayed in place better than straight temples. However, they could not be used while riding a horse or running. They would stay in place while doing common household chores and light work.
