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 gold-filled. We have frames made by Art Craft, Shuron, Eyetel, Bausch & Lomb, Univis, and various other American manufacturers.
