Here for sale is a fantastic antique optometrist lenses set dating we believe from the end of the 19th Century or the beginning of the 20th Century. Arranged in a beautifully made mahogany case with purple silk lining. Made by Archibald Young, 61 Forest Road, Edinburgh. Archibald Young & Sons were renowned makers of surgical and medical equipment in the 19th Century. 

Perfect for any collector or to stage in a business or home interior.


Incomplete set, but still a stunning decorative item great for display. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
